  • 1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix of Choice (We used chocolate fudge and it makes really rich, fudgy cookies!)
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • Powdered (Confectioners) Sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix, oil, and eggs. Mix well until the "dough" forms into a ball.
  • With your hands, make dough into small balls, about 1-inch each.
  • Roll dough balls in powered sugar and place on baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 °F degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  • After baking, let the cookies stand on sheet for two minutes. Cool on racks. 


Don't let the "dough" worry you. This won't be like regular cookie dough, it forms into a shiny ball.
