Cake & Frosting Cookies

by Heather on October 3, 2012

True story:  these cookies have 3 ingredients.  The end.

I mean guys, 3 whole entire ingredients.  That means after about 2 minutes of mixing and 10 minutes of baking you have fresh hot fudgy awesome cookies that will make everyone around you jump for joy.


Or, you know, from a sugar high.  Whatever.  They’re jumping though, and it’s because of you!


This recipe stemmed from a donation to the Heather’s Dish household of both a box of cake mix and a tub of frosting.  As much as I adore a good cake (and yes, I believe good cake can come from a box mix), it’s just dangerous to have an entire cake hanging out in my kitchen.  It stares me down until I grab a fork, and then it’s all over.  Much better to go the cookie route and pretend like I didn’t eat 15 of them before sending them off to work with Nate.


Oh wait.  I said that out loud didn’t I?


Oops :)


  • 1 box (18.25 oz) Devil’s Food (or other chocolate) cake mix
  • 1 can (16 oz) chocolate frosting
  • 1 whole egg

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine until well mixed.  I recommend refrigerating the dough for about 30 minutes so you can roll the dough into balls (makes for prettier cookies), but you can certainly just drop and bake at room temperature as well.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Fudgy, dense, uber-chocolatey and did I mention easy?  I’ll take it!
