Necessary ingredients

> 1 cup all-purpose flour

> 1/4 cup cocoa powder

> 3/4 tsp baking powder

> 1/4 tsp salt

> 1/2 cup brown sugar

> 1/4 cup 1/2 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature

> 2 eggs at room temperature

> Mix 1/4 cup buttermilk or milk with 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

> 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature

> 1 cup granulated sugar

> 1 tsp vanilla extract

> 1 dl marshmallow paste

> 4.5 ounces of milk or semisweet chocolate

> 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

> 1 tablespoon glucose syrup or honey

> 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


1- Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking trays with baking paper.

2- Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

3- Beat butter and brown sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract. Sprinkle 1/3 of the flour mixture over the butter mixture and beat until well combined. Then add half of the buttermilk and stir until well combined. Repeat with remaining flour mixture and buttermilk, finishing with flour.

4- Place 1-2 tablespoons of dough about 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, until the center is no longer soft. Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely.

5– Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Stir in the vanilla extract until well combined, then stir in the marshmallow batter until well combined. Spread a layer of marshmallow frosting on each cookie. Let the cookies cool for 30 minutes.

6- Combine chocolate, butter and corn syrup in a medium bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stirring each time, until all the chocolate chips have melted. When the mixture is smooth, stir in the vanilla. Pour the chocolate into a piping or ziplock bag, cut off the end and drizzle over the cookies.

Devil’s Food Cake Mix – I only use Pillsbury’s Devil’s Food Cake Mix when making these cakes, or whatever version is available.

Oil – canola, sunflower or mild olive oil works better than vegetable oil.

Vanilla extract – Mixing in a little vanilla helps bring out all the flavors. If you’re making these devils food cookie for the holidays, try some almond extract.

How do you make Devil’s Food Cookie Mix Cake?

Prepare the dough. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cake mix, oil, vanilla, eggs, and 1/4 cup sugar until well combined and a sticky dough forms.

Let the dough cool. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes to set the dough.

Take out the dough and roll it out. Using a cookie scoop, take about 2 tablespoons of dough, then roll it into a ball with your hands. Dip each ball lightly in the sugar to coat the outside.

Arrange the cookie dough balls. Place the cookie dough balls about 2 cm apart on a sheet lined with baking paper.

Bake the cookies. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until the cookies are set (mine are usually perfect after exactly 11 minutes). Let cool for 1 minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

When they come out of the oven you will be tempted to take a cookie, but since they are so soft, let them cool for 1 minute. Otherwise they will fall apart.
