See, totally worth the calories and time to make, because your kids (and you) will LOVE them. LOVE. The kind of love that takes you back to when you were little. Nostalgic love, if you will.
1 pkg. devil's food cake mix
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. shortening
2/3 c. powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
In a mixing bowl, beat cake mix, eggs, and oil. With clean hands, roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten them slightly (I use the bottom of a measuring cup). Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
In another mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and shortening. Add the sugar and vanilla; mix until smooth. Frost half of the cookies, top with remaining half.
We'll see you again soon, with a healthy recipe, full of fiber and vegetables...I promise.
