  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  • In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, and oil.
  • Stir to full combine, ensuring no clumps.
  • Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop the cookies onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake cookies in a preheated oven, 350 degrees, for about 7-8 minutes.
  • While cookies are baking, melt the butter in a small saucepan.
  • Whisk in the cocoa powder, milk, and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Remove cookies from oven and move to a cooling rack.
  • Place cooling racks on top of the parchment lined cookie sheets to easily catch the frosting run off.
  • Spoon frosting evenly on top of cookies and either eat immediately, or wait a bit to allow frosting to set up. Enjoy!
