When my friends see a recipe they like, it usually gets posted to my Facebook page. I take that as a hint that they want me to make the recipe for them :)
We were having a girls night at the neighbors and I decided I was going to make the German Chocolate Cake Cookies from “A Dash of Sanity” blog (it had been posted on my Facebook page earlier that week).
Then I started feeling lazy……when I was in the baking section at the grocery store I saw a box of german chocolate cake mix and then the can of coconut pecan frosting.
I turned the cake mix into cookies, tossed on some frosting and drizzled them with chocolate…. SUPER EASY!! Plus they were a big hit with my friends, husband, and daughter!!
- 1 Box of German Chocolate Cake Mix (15.25 oz)
- ⅓ Cup Vegetable Oil
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Cups Milk Chocolate Chips (divided)
- 1 Can of Coconut Pecan Frosting (15.5 oz)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In medium bowl mix the cake mix, eggs, oil and 1 cup of the chocolate chips until well combined. Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets, then press down with the back of the spoon to flatten them a little. Should make about 24 cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 mins. let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
- When cookies are cool, melt the remaining chocolate chips in the microwave 30 seconds at a time & stir, (don't overcook, they will turn hard) do this until they are smooth.
- Add spoonfuls of frosting to the cookies and spread around, then drizzle with melted chocolate chips.

What about the 2c milk? Not mentioned in directions!!!!!?
Hi, there is no milk in the recipe just 2 cups of milk chocolate chips. You add 1 cup of milk chocolate chips to the batter. Then you melt the other 1 cup of milk chocolate chips to drizzle over the top of the cookies. Thanks.
Hah! I thought it was 2 cups of milk as well until I read the comments and looked at it again. Thanks for clearing that up?
Sorry about that, maybe I should write it differently :)

I thought too thanks for asking and replying
When storing these, do the cookies get messy from the icing? Thanks!
Hi Jennifer, If you are going to stack them on top of each other, I would put parchment paper in between them. You could also store them in the fridge to get the icing solid. Hope this helps.
Wondering if I could bake with small amount for coconut frosting. Would it melt or become chewy?!
Hi Lucy, I thing it would melt. Probably best to put on after they cool. Good luck!
Just made these, my husband loves them, supper simple recipe !
Hi Kelly, I’m so glad you liked them!
Totally just added 2 cups of milk ??♀️

I would just say chocolate chips and let people decide what kind they want. LOL
