Carrot Cake Cookies

Brandi Kirkpatrick


Okay, so I was sucked in by the Carrot Cake Hershey kisses. I wanted to use them for our Easter dessert bar. I wanted a cookie that had the aspects of carrot cake (raisins, carrots, etc) and the cream cheese part. So, I googled how to make a box cake mix into cookies and made the rest up as I went. These were surprisingly good and I am so glad I used the amped up mix, it made them perfect!

10 Min


1 (21.41 oz) duncan hines decadent carrot cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
1 tablespoon of flour (only if using applesauce)


1 package carrot cake hershy kisses (taste like cream cheese frosting)


1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, eggs, and oil. I let this set for a few minutes to soften up the raisins and carrots (which is the reason I use the Duncan Hines mix).
3Scoop cookie dough into about 1 Tablespoon balls and set on ungreased cookie sheet.
4Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on cooling racks.
5Unwrap carrot cake kisses and place in a small, microwave safe bowl. Slowly melt kisses in microwave, cook for about 30 seconds and stir. Continue this process until melted. (BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN THEM!)
6Once melted, pour kisses into a strong Ziploc bag. Snip the corner off bag and drizzle over cookies.
