Triple Chocolate Fudge Cool Whip Cookies
Some days I get such an intense hankering for some chocolate or just something sweet! More times than not, when that hankering comes, I need it RIGHT NOW! I don’t want to wait for a lengthy and work-intensive recipe to be complete before I get to take a bite. If I get to baking before that craving becomes too intense then I have time to bake something with a few more steps. This was not the case earlier this week.
I worked so hard this past week, demolishing my kitchen counters and replacing the lower cabinets. My husband was away so a lot of it was up to me. Fortunately my dad stepped up and filled hubby’s shoes, and worked right alongside me! I couldn’t have done it without him! All of the extra work made me very thirsty and very much needing something sweet at the end of the day. I needed something easy so I turned to Pinterest.
I found this recipe for Cool Whip Cookies and had to know if they really did taste as good as the author claimed. I was nervous that they would taste too much like a cake mix, but I was pleasantly surprised! With only 4 ingredients, these cookies were so moist and yummy! The Cool Whip does wonders for these cookies! You can try this with any cake mix really, but the recommendation is for chocolate, strawberry or lemon. I used a Triple Chocolate Fudge cake mix and they reminded me of Chocolate Crackles! Lemon will be my next attempt.
- 1 package (18.25 Oz. Box) Cake Mix
- 1 cup Cool Whip

I make these every christmas! They are so easy and you can use any flavor of cake…my family’s favorites are lemon, red velvet and spice cake. We call them Snowflake cookies.
Do you think this would work well with gluten free cake mixes too? Thanks! Looks tasty!
I really don’t know Dawn, but I’d love to hear if you try it, and how it turns out!!
The amount of mess to make these cookies is unbelievable! The directions say to roll the dough between your hands to form a ball, ha!! Yea right! It’s like trying to make a ball out of marshmallow fluff in your hands! I found if I kept my hands slightly wet, it helped, but then the rolling in the powdered sugar didn’t seem to be quite right. They are in the oven now, I hope they are worth the pain to make!!
So sorry you had such a messy time making these! I wonder if it had anything to do with the cake mix or amount of liquid you included? The dough was sticky between my hands but it wasn’t as messy as you are describing. Hmm…I hope they were at least tasty for you!
Judy – I ran into this also. I put the dough in the fridge for a while and that helped. Also found I could just drop the dough from the spoon into the powdered sugar and roll it that way easily!
These cookies are so good! And so easy to make! I made these to give as part of some homemade treats for teachers, friends and a special neighbor. I couldn’t believe how easy and quick they were to make! And delicious! With only 4 ingredients, this is definitely a go to recipe! Thank you!!!!!!
When I make these cookies I put my hands in the powdered sugar first and it seems a lot easier to roll them. You have to dip your hands in the sugar throughout making them. Good luck.
Thanks for the tip, Cathy! It certainly is a sticky job! 😉
