Chewy Chocolate Cream Sandwich Cookies

Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 18 minutes

I came across cookies like these at the store recently and I wasn't willing to spend nearly four dollars for 12 cookies. In my house, they would be gone so fast it wouldn't be worth the cost. Just across from the cookies was a seasonal baking display filled with all sort of baking goods including cake mixes at a great sale price. I decided I could make those same cookies using my favorite cake mix cookie recipe, and I was right. The store version costs about 30 cents each and my homemade version is about 15 cents apiece.

What you'll need

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Devil's Food cake mix, (11 - 12 ounce package)
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) margarine, divided
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 (1 lb.) box confectioners' sugar

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Melt 1 stick of margarine and add to cake mix.
  4. Lightly beat eggs and add to mix. Stir well - this will form a sticky dough.
  5. Roll dough into 32 balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 8 minutes. Cool cookies completely.
  7. Cream together the remaining stick of margarine, cocoa and powdered sugar. Add milk if necessary so the filling is of spreading consistency.
  8. Spread about 1 teaspoon of filling onto 16 cookies. Top with remaining cookies. Decorate with filling thinned with a small amount of milk, if desired.
