TEXAS SHEET CAKE COOKIES made with a mix

Today I have taken this cake and turned it into my favorite food group…COOKIES!! I have also made life simple and used a cake mix for the cookie base. Using a cake mix to make cookies is a really great time saving tip because they take minimal ingredients and the cookies {when baked correctly} are phenomenal.

Moist chocolate cookies {make with a cake mix} and covered in a cooked chocolate frosting.

Ingredients

Cookie

1 box chocolate cake mix
2 eggs {whisked}
1/3 cup oil
Frosting
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp cocoa
3 tbsp milk
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

How to make it :

Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cookie ingredients in large bowl and mix until completely incorporated. NOTE: Dough will be thick.
Using a medium sized cookie scoop {or heaping tablespoon}, scoop cookies onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 7-8 minutes, remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 4-5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Repeat until all of the dough is baked.

Frosting

Combine the first 3 frosting ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk until the mixture has melted. Remove from heat, add powdered sugar and whisk until smooth.
Pour frosting over cookies. Use a knife or spoon to move excess frosting and be sure that each cookie is completely covered.
Let frosting set and serve. Keep cookies in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes

Add chopped pecans to the tops of cookies while the frosting isn’t completely set for added taste and texture.
