1 (18.25 ounce) package
German chocolate cake mix
1 (16 ounce) container
prepared coconut pecan frosting
These Came Out great, and my little sister loved them! I used devils food and chocolate frosting per her tastes. I made them very big, so next time I will roll out the dough and make mini cookie sandwiches. I will also try lemon cake with lemon icing
Don't substitute oil!! Unless you're sure you know the right proportions. This rating is only for the batch I tried to make by substituting oil as some of the previous reviewers did. Since they didn't say otherwise, I assumed a one-to-one substitution and completely wasted a whole box of cake mix. Very disappointed. I went with the oil b/c it was more affordable, If you're going to suggest substitutions, please be specific!!
Very good, RICH recipe. The cookies are not too sweet, so when filled with the caramel frosting you get a great flavor. The cookies will be puffy when first removed from the oven, but will flatten as they cool.
Great recipe. Yumm! The cookies turned out so deliciously moist and just slightly crispy on the outside. I used vegetable oil for the shortening and cooked the cookies on a Baking stone (I had a friend in cooking school recommend only baking on a Silpat or Pampered Chef Baking Stone; I guess they did an experiment and found those two items cooked the most evenly). I am going to try this same recipe with a different cake mix and frosting sometime, but for now, why mess with a good thing? I will definitely make this again - tomorrow in fact!
I made these cookies for the raffle table at my club meeting. I had extra copies of the recipe for anyone that wanted them. The next month, I got 11 raves for the cookies, so they will be made again. Everyone at my house, loves Chocolate - in any form.
I subbed coconut oil for shortening which gave the cookies a distinctive coconut taste all by themselves. So I did half the recipe as directed, and left the other half without the frosting. A hit with the family!
Made this for a friends birthday and they were an absolute hit! Very moist and tasty. I will definitly be making these again.
Yummy!! I like these as much as the cake if you eat it them right away!! I didn't like them the next day.
