    mary winecoff's Note:

    I needed to make a quick chocolate cookie to send to my godchild for her birthday. She is in college now (I feel so old) and she thought these were "the bomb" (her quote). I got this recipe from Camilla Saulsbury's Cake Mix Cookies book. Obviously, it travels well. Rich with a cake mix crust. I may have spent 10 minutes mixing these up.

      These were rich and decadent.... and got gobbled up fast! I used almonds instead of walnuts, for preference. I did overbake mine a bit on the second oven time, so make sure to pull as soon as you think they're set! Made for ZWT7.

      Sooo good! I used a triple chocolate fudge cake mix, and Scharffen Berger semisweet squares for the truffle layer. I didn't have any walnuts in the house, so I used pecans instead (half the amount). I would've left the nuts out completely, but I thought that they might be needed to cut the chocolaty-ness a bit. Loved the different textures in this. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7

      Talk about your decadent chocolate heaven... These are wonderful with their gooey, ganache-y goodness. I made them using a milk chocolate cake mix, milk chocolate chips for the truffle layer (also added a couple T of rum to the truffle) and white chocolate chips for the crumb layer. I also used a mix of pecans and walnuts because I didn't quite have enough of the latter and I so love nuts and couldn't bear to put in less than called for. One word of caution: don't think you're going to be able to stop with just a bite....especially if you make the fatal mistake of trying them warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream...
