Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies had me at hello. Here in STL we have a favorite dessert, ooey Gooey Butter Cake! We served it at our wedding and some out of town friends were so blown away I had to ship them some a few months later.

These Gooey Butter Cookies are ooey, gooey, buttery (yep…the title works) and just oh so addicting. I love it, but I wanted to see if I loved it just as much with chocolate and in cookie form. Spoiler alert, I DO!

What we love about Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies:

These gooey butter cookies have the same great texture as Saint Louis Gooey Butter Cake, but with CHOCOLATE! I’m a huge fan of chocolate and if I have my choice, that’s what I’ll always pick. Slightly crispy outside and (you guessed it) gooey inside. Are these the ultimate Christmas cookie?! Just maybe!

If you make a dozen of these for Santa I do believe you’ll get all your hearts desires this year. No one making these lands on the naughty list. These cookies can win over anyone and everyone.

Incidentally, gooey butter cake isn’t reserved for cake and chocolate gooey butter cake cookies. Care to try a gooey butter cake martini, pumpkin gooey butter bars, or gooey caramel apple cake? We are trying to make STL proud.

Ingredients

  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 8 tablespoons butter room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 18 ounce box Dark Chocolate Fudge Moist Chocolate Cake Mix
  • ¼ teaspoon coarse or kosher salt
  • 1 cup confectioner’s powdered sugar (*See Note)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth, approximately 3 minutes.
  2. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Add salt and cake mix and beat on medium until smooth, about 1½ minutes.
  4. Refrigerate dough for 1-2 hours or until batter is firm enough to roll into balls.
  5. When ready to bake, heat oven to 350°F and cover baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll chilled dough into 1 tablespoon sized balls and roll in confectioner’s sugar. Place cookies 2-inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake 12 minutes (no longer). The cookies will look and feel a little wobbly and soft.
  7. Place tray on a cooling rack to cool for 2 minutes, and dust the cookies with more powdered sugar (I use a mesh strainer).
  8. Transfer individual cookies to the cooling rack to completely cool.
  9. Dust with more powdered sugar, if desired.
  10. Enjoy!
  11. *Note – If a more intense chocolate flavor is desired, mix ½ cup cocoa powder with ½ cup confectioner’s sugar for the powdered sugar coating.

Hi! I made these last week for a christmas cookie exchange and they tasted FANTASTIC...a big hit at the paRty! They came out pretty flat and delicate....is that normal or did I do something wrong? After the first batch came out flat, I refrigerated the already rolled up balls before baking but it didn't make much difference. Not a big deal because they were yummy, but just wondering if theyw ere supposed to be flat and deliCate. Thanks for sharing!
    Becky Hardin
    I'm so glad they tasted great! Ours weren't super flat or delicate, they were pretty substantial. I'm not sure what the problem could have been...I'll ask my Mom what she thinks as well.

What is the kosher salt for on the chocolate gooey butter cake cookies recipe?
    Becky Hardin
    So sorry about that, we had accidentally left the salt out of the instructions. So glad you caught that :)
