How to Make Easy German Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies!

My husband's favorite cake is German chocolate, but when it's just the two of us, we don't need a whole cake sitting around  it's too tempting! Instead, I make him these easy cake mix German chocolate cookies. 

You'll need:

  • 1 box German chocolate cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (divided)
  • 1 can coconut pecan frosting

Here’s how you make then:

  1. Combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and 1 cup of the chocolate chips. Mix well.
  2. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Press with your fingers to flatten a little.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 8-9 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the pan a few minutes before removing to aluminum foil or a cooling rack.
  4. While the cookies cool, melted the remaining chocolate chips in microwave. Do this in 30-second intervals, stirring between each one, until smooth.
  5. When the cookies are completely cool, top each one with some of the pecan-coconut icing and then drizzle with the melted chocolate.
