Chocolate Polka Dot Cookies (New Recipe)

Hey Y'All!

Since I've been busy baking a bunch of cookies for a church shindig this week, I wanted to share this fun and easy recipe. 

I started with a cake mix...added cream cheese, butter, vanilla and an egg. I refrigerated the dough for a couple of hours while baking other things, and then rolled these and dotted them with white chocolate chips.

Using peanut butter chips would be an awesome option too! 

Hope you try them soon.  They're thick and delicious. 


1 (18 ozs.) box chocolate cake mix (I used devil's food) 
1 (8 ozs.) pkg. cream cheese, room temperature
1 stick butter, room temperature
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract (you could try coffee or caramel extract!) 
white (or peanut butter) chips
OR powdered sugar 

Preheat oven to 350. 

In large bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, egg and vanilla until smooth. 
Add cake mix - mix until smooth and blended. (Batter is thick but sticky). 

Refrigerate for 2 hours. Roll into Tablespoon sized balls (or drop) on ungreased cookie sheet - dot with chocolate chips. (Or if you prefer, roll balls in powdered sugar before baking). I pressed down on the cookies a bit before baking. 

Bake 10 - 11 minutes (they will still look soft in the middle); allow to cool on cookie sheet for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove to rack to cool.  

Will be soft in the center...and they'll go fast! 

Yield: about 20 good sized cookies
