I wish I could take the credit for these amazing chocolate cookies, but they are all Paula Deen. So, really, how bad could they be? You know at least that they are going to be buttery, but they are so much more. They are easy, insanely delicious and totally remind me of chocolate donut holes. You gotta try these, you won't be disappointed. I just had to share this recipe!
1 stick of butter, room temperature
1 bar (8 oz) cream cheese, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract1 box (18 oz) moist chocolate cake mix
Confectioner's sugar, for dusting
Preheat over to 350 degrees. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg, then the vanilla extract. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refridgerate for 2 hours to firm until you can roll the batter into balls.
Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then in confectioner's sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie shoot and bake for 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and gooey. Cool completely and dust with confectioner's sugar.
