German Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Cake mixes are so super versatile. Depending on what you add them (or what you add them to), you can make cookies, brownies, bars, cheesecake, ice cream, candy... oh yea, and cake. Yet, there seems to be a heavy preference towards certain flavors when creating these treats. I love a good yellow cake and sprinkles, but there is more to life than Funfetti, my friends! And to prove this to you, I've combined my love of cookies and cake with my love of Germans to bring you these awesomely moist and gooey German Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies.

  • 1 box German Chocolate cake mix
  • 1t baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2c oil
  • 1/2t vanilla
  • 1/2 can Coconut Pecan frosting (do what you will with the rest)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. 
  2. In a large bowl, sift cake mix and baking powder, then add the eggs, oil, and vanilla and mix until combined.
  3. Scoop out 1.5T of batter, roll it into a ball, and make a little hole in the middle.
  4. Fill the cookie with about 1t of frosting and then close the rest of the cookie around the frosting the best you can.
  5. Place 2 inches apart on parchment-covered cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes.
I wouldn't be too pressed about wrapping the cookie around the frosting perfectly, it's still going to be come exposed during the baking process, but that kind of keeps it contained to a certain degree. Letting them cook and set up on the cookie sheet before you dive in is a good idea, or else they may fall apart. But they are still going to taste awesome regardless, so I won't judge you if you can't wait.
