How to make it

  • Beat egg, by hand, in a large bowl.
  • Stir in cake mix and melted butter (batter will be very stiff)
  • Roll into 1" balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet; flatten each ball with your fingertips
  • QUICK TIP: I have found that I can make these balls in no time if I pack the batter into a 1 1/8” diameter melon baller to form flat bottomed balls; hit melon baller on counter to release dough, place ball on cookie sheet and flatten with bottom of water fast!
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 8 not overbake - you want them barely crispy around the edges but soft and gooey in the center.
  • Cool cookies completely, then match them up in pairs before starting the filling and frosting process.
  • When cookies are all paired up, FROST THE BOTTOM of a cookie with about a tablespoon of whipped frosting (be sure to use the whipped frosting, so the filling is fluffy and light).
  • FROST THE TOP of the second cookie with the chocolate frosting, then sandwich them together, with the white fluffy filling in the middle.
  • Lay them on some waxed paper to allow the frosting to set up.
  • Continue until all cookies are frosted and “sandwiched” together.
  • For the chocolate frosting, mix all ingredients together with a mixer.
  • Add enough half-and-half to make the frosting easily spreadable. The "creamy-ness" of this frosting comes from the half-and-half, so water or milk won't make it as creamy. If you can manage it, don't substitute!
