Being a mom of 3 small children I don't have time to make everything homemade so I bake a lot with cake mixes. I love experimenting with different cake mix flavors, mix in's and icings. Well this gem was born from my love of chocolate and pralines. Why not mix the 2? This is what would happen if Chocolate cake and pralines got together had babies! You better get a tall glass of milk because these bad boys are RICH!

Ingredients

COOKIES

1 box
betty crocker triple chocolate fudge cake mix
2
eggs
1/3 c
vegetable oil
1/2 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips

FOR THE PRALINE ICING

1 c
chopped pecans
1 c
firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 c
whipping cream
1/4 c
salted butter
1 c
powdered sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract

TIP: IF YOU CAN NOT FIND THE BETTY CROCKER TRIPLE CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE MIX THEN FEEL FREE TO USE A REGULAR CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE MIX, BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO ADD AN ADDITIONAL 1/2 CUP OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together cake mix, eggs, and oil until powder is completely dissolved together.
2
Next add the 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Mix well.
3
Grease a cookie sheet and drop by spoon fulls onto pan. I like to use my cookie scoop for more uniform cookies.
Bake 9-12 min until done. The cookies will come out soft but will harden up a little when it cools. They will be nice a chewy.
4
FOR THE FROSTING:
While cookies are cooling bring the brown sugar, whipping cream, and butter to a boil in a 2 quart sauce pan over medium heat, stirring often; boil for 1 min.
5
Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in chopped pecans. Stirring gently for 2-4 minutes or until mixture begins to cool and thicken slightly.
6
With the cookies on a cooling rack, place a sheet of aluminum foil under the cooling rack. Then spoon the icing over the cookies. Let the icing set and then enjoy!
