Cookie experiment = YUMMY!!!

After the addiction to the Chocolate Chip/Oreo cookies, I decided I wanted to try something else inside of a cookie. While I was at Target standing in the candy area wondering, "what would taste good in a cookie??!!" My choices are limited since Miss H has a severe peanut allergy and most candy is off limits. However, the wonderful Hershey company is one that almost never has peanuts or traces of it in their candy. I spotted a pretty pink bag and was so excited they were Raspberry HUGS!!! Now that would taste so good inside of a chocolate cookie!! I also picked up a chocolate cake mix. I love the 3 ingredient cookies made with Betty Crocker Cake mixes, my mom made them all the time when I was growing up and now I love to make them for my kids. They are really easy as well as so soft and yummy. I love soft cookies, if they are crunchy- BLECH!!!!
Here is what I did:

* Make cookie dough- 1 box of Betty Crocker (I like it best because of the pudding in the mix) Chocolate Cake mix. 1 stick of butter (I use real butter), and 2 eggs. Soften the butter and add the eggs to the mix and stir together.

* Unwrap the Hugs and cut the tips off. (I put the tips in a bowl and the kids LOVED to be able to eat them!)

*get a small spoonful of dough and put the Hug into it, then wrap the dough all around it and put it on the cookie sheet.

Wrap dough around the Hug. (Miss H is helping)

* Bake at 350* for 7 minutes.

* After 7 min. take the pan out (they will not look done) and let them sit on the cookie sheet for 1 more min. They will finish cooking without getting hard and crispy. Then use a spatula and put them on wax paper. I used my cooling rack and I wish I had used wax paper because the middles of a couple oozed a bit from the Hug and I know it would have been avoided if I used wax paper.

* You shouldn't be able to see the Hug by just looking at the cookie; but when you bite into it....YUMMINESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously....you will love them. So go to the store..right now.  You need to make these!!!!
