 Ingredients List

  • ~~~~~~~~ Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies ~~~~~~~~
  • 1 box devil's food cake mix (I like pillsbury)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 C. oil
  • ~~~~~~~~ Cake Batter Frosting ~~~~~~~~
  • 2/3 C. butter, softened
  • 1/3 C. yellow cake mix (dry)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. milk
  • 2-3 C. powdered sugar
  • yellow food dye, optional
  • ~~~~~~~~ Chocolate Ganache ~~~~~~~~
  • 3/4 C. chocolate chips
  • 1/3 C. plus 2 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream
  • Sprinkles and Maraschino cherries for decoration


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line pans with parchment paper.

2. Sift cake mix into a large bowl.

3. Add eggs and oil. Mix until combined, batter will be stiff.

4. Make walnut sized dough balls and place on cookie sheets. Gently press down on each dough ball just a little to make sure the cookie bakes "out" and not "up."

5. Bake for 6-8 minutes depending on how fudgey or cakey you want the cookies to be.

6. Cake Batter Frosting: Beat butter and cake mix until smooth. Add vanilla extract, milk and slowly add in powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Add a few drops of yellow dye if desired.

7, Chocolate Ganache: Heat chocolate chips and cream together and stir until smooth. (Heat on the stove top over low heat or in the microwave!)

8. To assemble, frost cookies (I used a large circle piping tip and used a spoon to make a little "well" to hold the ganche). Spoon in ganache, then top with sprinkles and cherries!
