German Chocolate Cookie Bites!

Posted on

What could be better than a big slice of german chocolate cake?  Why a german chocolate cookie stuffed full of that yummy coconut pecan icing of course!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 box of German Chocolate cake mix
  • 1/3c. softened margarine
  • 1/2 box of cream cheese (4 oz.)
  • 1/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • German chocolate frosting (get a tub of it –or be fancy and use my favorite recipe for it!)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream together margarine and cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add egg, stirring until smooth.
  • Blend in melted chocolate.
  • Add cake mix last and stir until combined.  Use your hands to knead mixture into a heavy cookie dough.
  • Make evenly- size small balls of dough (I use a Small Cookie Scoop) and place on cookie sheets.

  • Gently press cookies into a flattened cookie shape (rather than a ball) as they will not spread out when they bake.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
  • Remove cookies from oven and cool completely.
  • Spread frosting between two similarly -sized cookies and chill until serving.

My thoughts:  I love how the cookie part turned out.  I was really just experimenting with using a cake mix.  I’ve used a cake mix before with my Carrot Cake Cookies– but I knew they couldn’t be made the same (oatmeal in a german chocolate cake?!).  The cookies are dense and sooo chocolatey and rich.  They scoop wonderfully and don’t stick to the cookie sheet– perfect!  Look for them again soon– I want to try my hand at some caramel cookies with caramel cake mix!!!  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Fudge Cookies

Posted on

Fudgy bonbon cookies

These decadent fudge cookies are filled with creamy peanut butter…the secret ingredient?  Philadelphia Cream Cheese!  You’ll have a hard time deciding if you are eating candy or a cookie- so you’ll have to eat another of course- to help you decide!

INGREDIENTS: (makes 25-30 cookies)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Soften Philadelphia cream cheese in microwave until completely smooth.
  • Melt chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring well in between.
  • Add cream cheese to melted chocolate and blend well.
  • Add flour and stir into a thick dough consistency.
  • Flatten about 1 T. of dough in your palm, place a peanut butter cup in the center and gently wrap the dough around the cup until it is completely covered.
  • Roll cookie into a ball and place on an un-greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Remove warm cookies from cookie sheet and place on parchment paper.
  • To decorate: melt candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between.
  • Dip 1/2 of each cookie into the white chocolate and set on a fresh piece of parchment paper.
  • Drizzle dark chocolate over the top of each cookie and allow toppings to harden (you can refrigerate to speed this process along!)

My thoughts:  This is another recipe submission for Real Women of Philadelphia- this community brings out my very best creativity- love it!  I think you will love these cookies- they are fun to make and SO fun to eat!!! YUM!!
