I used to make these and gooey butter cookies from scratch, however, I know that not everyone carries these ingredients in their houses, so I've posted recipes using cake mixes! Of course you can simply replace those mixes with your own favorite dry cake mix ingredients.
1 box of chocolate cake mix (or your favorite cake recipe sans wet ingredients)
½ cup oil or melted butter
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
Combine the wet ingredients until thoroughly mixed. Then slowly add in your chocolate cake mix.
Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to 8 hours.
When you're ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350° F.
Place your powdered sugar into a separate bowl.
Scoop a spoonful of dough into your hands and roll into a ball. Drop a few of the dough balls into the powdered sugar and toss to coat.
Place the dough balls onto an un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Cool and enjoy!
