Here in STL we have a favorite dessert, 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. It’s 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! These GOOEY BUTTER CAKE COOKIES are out of this world and the perfect easy (Hello, they’re made from cake mix!) baking recipe for the holidays. You can make a batch to take to work, one to take to family Christmas, and a couple to keep at home and chip away little by little.

These 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.

Pat and I polished off more of these than I care to admit in less time than I care to admit. Hey, we are chasing around a crawling baby. A very fast crawling baby. My iphone step counter doesn’t account for scooting across the floor at the speed of light. LOTS of calories burned around here.

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 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.
