I was in a pickle with a serious chocolate hankering and inspired by a fellow blogger, I used what ingredients I had on hand to make these amazingly easy and oh so wonderful cookies. All you need are 3 basic ingredients and if you want to dress them up with frosting and garnish, by all means! It satisfied my craving and is now a dangerous thing since they are so easy and accessible. You may substitute regular oil for the coconut oil. Feel free to try any cake mix, skies the limit!
1 dark chocolate (or any chocolate) cake mix
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup coconut oil, if solid then melt it down gently until liquid
Cream Cheese Frosting
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 TBS butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBS milk
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine cake mix, eggs and oil. Drop cookie dough by tablespoonfuls onto silpat or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes and let rest on pan for a few minutes, transfer to cooling rack.
For frosting, cream together cream cheese and butter. Add vanilla, milk and powdered sugar and continue to beat until smooth. Frost over cooled cookies and sprinkle with toasted coconut. The result is a crispy exterior and a moist and chewy interior.
