“I've been told these are almost like brownies. A fun twist on a traditional cookie. Cook time does not include freezing the dough or cooling the cookies. You will have extra filling left that you can use as fudge.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift cake mix, flour, and cocoa. Set aside.
  2. Beat eggs and water.
  3. Add dry mixture to wet and mix until blended. Dough will be sticky.
  4. Roll dough into a cylinder about 3" in diameter. Wrap cylinder in plastic wrap and place in the freezer until frozen.
  5. Remove dough from freezer and let thaw slightly (about 1/2 hour if dough is frozen solid).
  6. While dough is thawing, melt chocolate together with sweetened condensed milk in microwave on 50% power. Mix well.
  7. Slice dough into quarter inch slices.
  8. Add a dollop of the chocolate filling to the middle of each slice.
  9. Once dough is completely defrosted, fold each slice into a triangle, being sure to pinch the corners closed and leave the filling peeking out of the middle.
  10. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes on parchment lined cookie sheets.
  11. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheets for a few minutes and then remove them to cooling racks to finish cooling.
