My first encounter with a cake cookie was back in 2008 when I was pregnant with my little Edie. My sister and dad came from Vegas for a visit and my sister made a delicious batch of devils food cake cookies and they were crazy good! Luckily for me, my sister made me a copy of her delicious cookie recipe, but unfortunately up until now, I had forgotten about that recipe. Which is a shame because there is nothing quite as easy as cake cookies.
Last week in all of the excitement of The Hunger Games premiere, one of the bloggers I follow, Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen, did a fun little Hunger Games party and recreated some of the foods talked about in the book. These cookies made an appearance at her party and I knew I had to make these myself. It must of been fate because I had a spice cake mix already on hand!
My husband just about flipped his lid when he came home and discovered I made cookies. He’s all but eaten them all now, LOL! These cookies are a great if your short on time but want something delicious and moist. The kids can even get involved with this recipe. So if you’ve got a spice cake mix laying around, you should make these. Even if you don’t have a spice cake laying around, pick one up and make these with your kids…or your husband. Or even just for you; I can keep a secret ;) !
