  • 1 box Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 4 oz cream cheese (softened to room temperature - 1/2 a block)
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened - 1/2 a cube)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degreed Farenheit.
  • In a medium sized bowl, combine the dry cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil. Stir together till everything is combined and you have a thick cookie batter.

  • Flatten each of the balls slightly with your fingers.
  • Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake for 7-9 minutes or until the cookie tops are set and start to crack.
  • Remove pan from the oven and let cookies cool on the cookie sheets for about 3 minutes. Then remove them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • Beat the cream cheese in a medium sized bowl with a stand mixer or hand mixer until smooth.
  • Add in the butter and beat till smooth.
  • Add in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and beat until the whole thing is smooth.

For the Assembly:

  • Frost the bottom of one of the cookies and place another cookie on top to sandwich them.
  • Repeat with remaining cookies.
  • Enjoy the cookies immediately, or place them in a container with a lid and chill for at least one hour to enjoy them chilled.
  • Store any leftovers in a container with a lid for up to 3 to 4 days.
