Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

I stumbled upon this recipe through a Facebook post and decided to try it. Turns out the recipe needed a little adjusting but the basics and the final result are delicious! The cookie is soft and the frosting, fudge.

Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

For the cookies…
1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
2 large eggs, beaten
1/3 cup vegetable oil

For the frosting…
1 stick unsalted butter
3 tablespoons whole milk
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
2-3 tablespoons water

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a bowl combine the cake mix, beaten eggs and vegetable oil. Mixture will be thick.

Place heaping tablespoon size balls onto prepared baking sheets and bake one sheet at a time in preheated oven for 14 minutes.

Once the cookies are cool, make the frosting. In a medium sized sauce pot over medium heat melt the unsalted butter with the whole milk and unsweetened cocoa powder. Once the mixture is melted, smooth and combined, add in the confectioner’s sugar and beat until smooth. Add tablespoons of water into the frosting and beat until frosting is thick but spreadable.

Pour the frosting carefully onto each cookie, spreading over the whole cookie.

Allow the frosting to set for about 5 minutes, eat and enjoy.
