"This recipe makes a soft, chewy cookie that your family will gobble up in a hurry! There are only four ingredients and I have most of them in my pantry or refrigerator at all times -- no hunting for exotic ingredients! If chocolate is not your favorite, the recipe can be changed by using a lemon cake mix with the pudding in the mix. They are great also!"

appropriate to make today since it is snowing out. I must say I have tried several recipes on here w/the same concept of rolling dough made from cake mix in 10x sugar and these by far are the prettiest with the best effect. I used a D.H. dark chocolate fudge mix. **TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR THOSE WANTING TO MAKE THESE...IF U BUY AN 8OZ CONTAINER OF COOLWHIP AND REMOVE 3/4 CUP....DUMP THE REST IN THE BOWL...THAT IS EXACTLY 2 1/4 CUPS** It makes it easier to use a cookie scoop and just remove them into the bowl of 10x sugar and roll around. No sticky fingers. I didn't refrigerate dough at all. Very attractive cookie. They taste soft and chewy like a brownie almost.


Everyone I know loves these cookies! Most asked for christmas cookie that I make. I make them one batch at a time because the batter is so sticky, and I've burnt out a couple of handmixers because I tried to rush it.. I also stopped using handmixers with this.. lol! My favorite is using Lemon Cake Mix. Tip for fluffier cookies: Use cold Cool Whip out of the fridge, I found out that if I used warmer Cool Whip the cookies turned out flatter and not as chewy.

These are less like cookies and more like bites of chocolate cake. I always read the reviews before I make a recipe and in this case I am so glad I did. The batter is definitely sticky and I burned up my hand mixer and had to finish mixing by hand. Very difficult. Another reviewer suggested dusting your hands with confectioners sugar to prevent the batter from sticking to them. That was invaluable advice because, again, the batter is very sticky. I would not go through the trouble of making these cookies again. If I want chocolate cake bites I will simply make a chocolate cake.
