These are my all time favorite cookie! They are so chocolatey and gooey and delicious. Everyone that tries them for the first time always say "wow!" Looking at them, you wouldn't think they were super soft and bursting with chocolate flavor, but man are they good. My cousin once described them as, "pillowy chocolate clouds of heaven". Enough said.
Gooey Chocolate Cookies1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
1 chocolate cake mix
Cream together cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy, 5 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in cake mix. Wrap dough in plastic and chill in refrigerator for two hours or freezer for 30 minutes. *If making cookie dough sundae, shape some of the dough into squares and freeze separately.
Roll chilled dough into balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar and place on cookie sheet two inches apart. Bake at 375 for 11 minutes. Do not over bake! Cookies will look gooey when they come out. They will set when cooling.
