These two cookie recipes (German Chocolate and Chocolate Candy Cane Crunch) are so easy that you can not mess them up. Take my word for it. My two year old helped me. If you have 15 minutes, you can have yummy cookies! That is counting mixing and baking! And they look oh so impressive!
Let’s start with German Chocolate. These were born out of my need for something quick to take to a neighborhood party.
German Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 stick butter
1 tub Coconut Pecan Frosting
Melt butter in large bowl. Mix in cake mix and eggs. Roll in to 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Once cool, place a good layer of frosting between two similar sized cookies.
My little guy loved stirring, rolling and counting the balls and licking the spoon at the end. (Don’t worry, he washed his hand immediately beforehand. Anyone else freaked out about the prospect of messy kid hands helping with the cooking?! Amanda, I know you’re with me!)
This is to use up all those candy canes you’ll be pulling off the tree.
Devil’s Food Cake Mix
1 stick butter
Candy Canes (crushed)-I used Hershey Chocolate Mint candy canes so you could barely taste the mint. I think regular peppermint would be really yummy too.
1 Cup white chocolate chips (optional)
Melt butter in large bowl. Mix in cake mix, chocolate chips, and eggs. Roll dough in to 1 inch balls. Dip top in candy cane. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes on 350 degrees.
