Chocolate Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies

My sister went camping and wanted to take an easily portable treat. What better than cookies? We tried this Chocolate Ooey Gooey Butter Cookie recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything. Quite tasty indeed.

Christy (aka The Girl Who Ate Everything) got this recipe from Paula Deen.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
confectioner’s sugar, for dusting
1 (18 ounce) box moist chocolate cake mix
1 (8-ounce) brick cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
1 stick of butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Beat in the egg. Then beat in the vanilla extract. Beat in the cake mix. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to firm up so that you can roll the batter into balls. Roll the chilled batter into tablespoon sized balls and then roll them in confectioner’s sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes. The cookies will remain soft and gooey. Cool completely and sprinkle with more confectioners’ sugar, if desired.

Yield: 2 dozen cookies


  1. Those look DELICIOUS. Come make some for me?

  2. oh no--ANOTHER baked good I think I have to try. Anything chocolatey and gooey just gets me. Even though I just ate breakfast. :)

  3. Yummy! Thanks for sharing! :)

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

  4. Any Paula Deen recipe is a winner in my book! Sounds delicious...may have to make that on my "cheat" day...
