Christmas is a’coming and the cookie trays need to be filled. And I have a recipe for you!
These Soft and Gooey Chocolate Cookies start with a cake mix. Add a little cream cheese. Add a little butter. You end up with easy to make, simply delicious gooey chocolate cookies.
5 ingredients and you have delicious. What is not to love?? Especially when it involves powdered sugar and chocolate. Right?!?!
When you add these to your Christmas tray for your child’s teacher or your neighbor, you can also add the Gooey Strawberry Cookie or the Caramel Shortbread Cookie. So many cookies to choose from this Christmas season. So many to sample, ya know? 😉
Soft And Gooey Chocolate Cookies
When you make these cookies, I highly suggest using a hand mixer or Kitchen Aid mixer. You don’t have to, of course, a good old wooden spoon works well too, but the batter is rather thick so to mix these soft and gooey chocolate cookies can be a little on the hard side. Might as well let your mixers do the work for you.
Also, be sure to soften the cream cheese and butter. It will make for easier mixing. And less chunks. And nobody wants chunks. Simply put the cream cheese and butter on the counter for about 30 minutes. That should do the trick.
You can use regular butter or margarine in these cookies. Margarine works just fine and you can’t tell if you don’t use regular butter, if you want to save money. Imperial margarine: $.89 Aldi. Butter: $2.59. Butter: better for you. Margarine: not so much. Take your pick. 🙂
After you mix up the cookies, roll the dough into balls and roll them in powdered sugar. Place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 7 minutes or so, it doesn’t take long. Remove from oven, place on cookie rack and let cool. Then enjoy with a glass of milk. Er, Almond Milk in my case. Soft and gooey, delicious and easy.
