"Faux 'reos"

Super sweet treats! 

Yummy & Easy to Make!

These Oreo "look alikes" are soft on the outside with a creamy filling on the inside.


They are quick to whip up with only a few simple ingredients.

The recipe calls for two chocolate cake mixes which you can mix and match to suit your taste.

 Dark Chocolate Fudge and Devil's Food were a great combination!

One important tip for making these cookies is to use parchment paper on your cookie sheet. 


Normally I don't use parchment paper when making cookies, but with this recipe it is very helpful.  It makes the soft cookies very easy to remove from the pan and of course makes clean up much faster!

To make each cookie uniform, I dropped one rounded tablespoon of dough onto the parchment paper and then slightly flatted it with a spoon.


A trick for filling the cookies is to place a drop of frosting in the center of the cookies and press them together to spread the frosting. 


Here's the recipe for you to try...
