It's way past time for me to post another recipe, and with the upcoming holiday, I figured I'd do something sweet. I don't bake all that often, but these cookies...Oh...My....God. You will have to restrain yourself from eating them all in one sitting. They're also very easy to whip up, but they are NOT very healthy.
1 8oz brick of cream cheese, room temp.
1 stick (real) butter at room temp.
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 18 oz box of chocolate cake mix. I prefer fudge, but some like German chocolate cake mix
Powdered sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F)
In a large bowl, mix cream cheese and butter until smooth. An electric mixer is preferred, but you'll live without it.
Beat in the egg, followed by the vanilla extract. Add cake mix and beat. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or 2 to make mixture firm and easy to roll into balls.
Roll the mixture into balls and roll them in powdered sugar. Place them on a cookie sheet (ungreased) 2 inches apart. Bake 15-20 minutes
Cookies will be gooey and awesome. Cool them completely and sprinkle with more powdered sugar if you'd like.
Okay, I'm off to the store for some cream cheese so I can make a batch! This post made me hungry.
