So, this is not your typical cookie. Our Cheatin' Wheat Gluten Free Chocolate Cake mix serves as the cookie base. That's right. Cake Mix masquerading as a cookie. A stuffed cookie no less.
Stuffed cookies? Stuffed with what you might ask? Well, any candy you want that pairs nicely with chocolate, and preferably something that will melt into a gooey decadent center when baked inside the cookie. You can use any candy you like such as more chocolate, caramels, mini peanut butter cups, Snickers pieces, etc. Obviously, just make sure it is gluten free!
Is this cookie sophisticated, difficult, or time consuming? No! Is it super easy, kid friendly and delicious? Yes! I'm talking so easy, your kids should be doing the work while you supervise. And only because there is an oven involved and they might eat all the candy used to stuff the batter.
|Prep time: 10 minutes||Cooking time: 12 minutes||Total time: 22 minutes|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place Cheatin' Wheat Gluten Free Chocolate Cake mix and salt into a bowl. Separately, whisk together the eggs, oil, vanilla and water. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix and stir to combine. You will have a nice, stiff batter. However, it will be a little sticky.
Now, I like just enough "cookie" to surround a lot of candy. However, you can use whatever ratio of batter to filling you like. There are several ways to proceed through the next steps so I will give you a few options:
Bake cookies for 9-12 minutes depending on the size of scoop you used. The cookies will feel fully set, but not dry or crispy. Remember, it is more like cake than a crunchy cookie.
Feel free to substitute your favorite spirit or liqueur in place of the water for an extra kick.
