|A few ingredients for this |
chocolately good cookie.
For the rest of us newbies, here is the recipe, but my disclaimer is I didn't follow it- No Surprise.
1 Box of Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/3 cup of oil, usually Canola Oil
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a baking sheet or use a non-stick sheet.
Put cake mix, eggs, and oil in a bowl and mix until well blended. It will be a dough consistency, not batter.
Take a piece of dough, flatten it then put a Rolo in the
center and close up the dough around the Rolo.
Place about 2 inches apart and Bake 8-10 minutes.
This is supposed to make 4 dozen. It made 14, that's almost 3 dozen less than promised. The dough was way too thick. I even added water to try and thin it out. Afterwards, I checked various sites and they all had the same list of ingredients without water or other thinning liquids. You can see the result on a cooling rack in this post about the Cranberry Sugar Cookies.
In the image you see the two toned candies. I used mint chocolate candies in some and Rolos in others. You must chop up the harder chocolates as they will not melt! Delicious, but you need beaver teeth to gnaw away at a hunk of chocolate like that. Funny and true!
Analysis: I wouldn't make these again unless there was a way to make more than 15. Maybe I'll try again and add more water to the mix. I would definitely try a different candy, maybe some kind of softer mint, as I like the chocolate mint cookie rather than the chocolate caramel cookie.
Did you ever make these? What was your result? Do you see a liquid ingredient missing or not?
