Frosted cake mix cookies topped with candy!

For Jerry’s birthday and Football Friday #2

I went simple for this treat, for my friend Jerry’s birthday and Football Friday #2 of the season. They are cake mix cookies, with chocolate frosting the topped with crushed heath Bars. You can use any cake mix flavor and candy!

  • Ingredients
  • 2 chocolate cake mixes
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbs water

Directions – preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. blend ingredients together. You may want to add an extra tbs or 2 of water, if you feel the dough is too dry. Line a baking sheet with nonstick baking liners. Scoop out 3 tbs of dough and form mounds. Stagger on prepared sheets. Bake 10 minutes. Cool completely.

I ran out of chocolate frosting, so I whipped up vanilla frosting for 5 cookies!
  • Frosting ingredients
  • 2 tbs butter, melted
  • 2 tbs baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbs milk
  • Finely crushed heath bars (I used a food processor for this. You could also put them in a large plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.)

Directions – combine butter, vanilla and cocoa. Blend in powdered sugar. Add milk. Frost cookies and top with crushed heath Bars (or other candy)

I get to be normal for a second straight sunday because the Bills don’t play until Monday night! I tease Rob that my Bills Fandom is the “sickness” part of the “in sickness and health” of the wedding vows. Go Bills!
