Chewy, chocolaty cookies made with cream cheese and chocolate cake mix. Easy & tasty. My kids love to make these with me for their lunch boxes. Try different flavors to mix it up!

- 1⁄4 cup chocolate syrup or 1⁄4 cup room temperature hot fudge
- 2 cups chocolate chips

- Mix cream cheese and butter in deep bowl until well blended.
- Beat in egg.
- Beat in vanilla and chocolate syrup.
- Beat in chocolate chips.
- Beat in or mix in by hand the dry cake mix. Batter will be very thick.
- Cover dough and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Roll dough into tablespoon-sized balls and roll generously in powdered sugar.
