Fudgy Cracked Cookies

Fudgy Crackled Cookies

These quick and easy chewy, fudgy cookies are delicious and have more ‘wow’ factor than your standard biscuit.

You’ll need:

1 box of Devil’s Food Cake Mix
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
2 large eggs
Icing sugar for rolling (works best if this has been sifted)


Step 1: Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Put the cake mix (I used Betty Crocker), eggs and vegetable oil (I’d run out, so used olive oil and it worked just as well) into a large bowl and stir.

Step 2: Once mixed, shape dough into 3cm/4cm balls. Place on a lined baking tray and leave to dry for a few minutes. (This is so that the icing sugar doesn’t get absorbed into the dough.)

Step 3: Roll the balls in icing sugar. Make sure they are very well coated, otherwise you won’t get that lovely crackled look.

Step 4: Place 6cm apart on the baking tray and bake for 10 minutes or until the middle has JUST SET. Don’t take them out too early, or you’ll find they ‘flop’.

Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Step 5: Eat them before hubby or the kids do!

Who’s tried them and what  did you think?!

  • 10 Parenting Rules – and I broke them all

    Confession. I was one self-righteous, know-it-all bitch Before Children [BC]. It’s true. I knew it ALL. Anything wrong with a kid? It’s their mum’s fault. Sometimes their dad’s. But mainly mum… because she CHOSE the dad after all. In my, far from humble, opinion parents were entirely responsible for everything their kids did, thought, said […]
