Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies


We interrupt the regularly scheduled healthy cooking with some decadent, tasty, buttery, gooey cookies. 

The Secret Recipe Club, group A posted their recipes yesterday and one got missed!  Whoops!  When you've been waiting a whole month so see who your secret blogger is, and are waiting eagerly to see what they made of yours, you can imagine the disappointment on posting day, to find out that no one posted a recipe for your blog. 

So a bunch of us got together and created some recipes from Connors Cooking and posted them today!  I was thrilled to be led to her blog as she has so many wonderful things to choose from.

I know that I needed to bake.  I have 14 daycare kids here today and I NEEDED to bake something for them.  I was thrilled to find a simple, quick recipe to makes. 

But I didn't have the butter!!  Can you believe it, I ran out of butter!  So the husband was nice enough to run to the store to buy some butter this morning!! 


Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies
Recipe adapted from Connors Cooking

1 - 8 oz. brick cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (18 oz) chocolate cake mix
Powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350.  In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and butter until smooth.  Beat in the egg and vanilla.  Beat in the cake mix, it will be super thick, do the best you can. 

Roll mix into balls, about a tablespoon and roll ball into powdered sugar.  Place on cookie sheet sprayed lightly with cooking spray.  Bake 13 minutes.  Cool and sprinkle with more powdered sugar if desired.  Makes 48 cookies.

  1. Chocolate, gooey and butter...delicious! It was fun coming together and cooking from Connor's Cooking. I hope that you'll check out the Nutella Crêpes which I made from her blog.

  2. Mmm, they look good. I'm out of butter right now, too, and eagerly waiting my husband to get home so I can made a shopping run. Sometimes I'd rather use cake mixes for things like this than bake an actual cake with them. Nice pick.

  8. I wish that I would've seen this recipe earlier tonight when I was searching for a quickie dessert to make for my kids. I bet all of the kids liked them. I know mine would!
