Yes, these are messy to make, but well worth it. Seems the kids like to make these probably because of the stickiness. My 17 yo can eat the whole batch!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 ounce) box dark chocolate cake mix (2 layer size)
  • 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed

  1. Mix together by hand the mix and cool whip.

  6. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes.
  7. Watch carefully you want them to be loose looking.

I refrigerated the dough and it was not messy at all to roll the balls in the powdered sugar. I got 40 cookies out of my batch and they came out chewy and chocolately. They took 8-9 minutes in my oven. Very easy recipe for such a great cookie! Thanks for sharing! P.S. I used devil's food cake mix.

SO good and simple!!!
I followed another reviewers tip to refrigerate before rolling into balls--much less sticky.
