Baking With Kids (Chocolate Cake Batter Cookies With Homemade Icing (Learn & Link With Linky)



It’s been a heck of a week. My 4-year-old daughter was hospitalized due to her asthma and thankfully she was out in 4 days and is doing quite well since being home. While the boys went to soccer practice tonight I stayed home with her and we baked cookies for our Valentine’s Day party tomorrow with our friends. It was nice to have just her and I baking in the kitchen. We made Chocolate Cake Batter Cookies With Homemade Icing. So easy and yet so yummy!

Cookies Recipe
This Recipe is SO easy
  1. I used a box of Pillsbury Chocolate Cake Mix
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1/2 Cup of Vegetable Oil
Homemade Icing
  1. 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  2. 5 Tablespoons of milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  3. 1/4 Cup of Sugar
Baking directions for cookies
  1. Take the cake mix, eggs, sugar and vegetable oil and mix all together then roll them into a 1 inch ball and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Once they are out of the oven gently press down on the tops with the back of a fork so that they are flattened. Allow to cool.
Homemade Icing Directions
  1. Mix the powdered sugar and milk together using a fork, as you mix it will begin to thicken up, keep mixing until there are no more lumps.
  1. Do not ice the cookies until they are completely cooled off. I iced the cookies with a butter knife. The icing hardens quickly so if you are going to add candy accents be quick!
