SURPRISE COOKIES FROM A CAKE MIX

Makes 5 dozen

2 cups butter, softened
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (18.5 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 (13 ounce) package chocolate covered caramel candies (e.g. Rolo)
1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar for rolling

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter and flour together until soft
    and smooth. Stir in the cake mix to form a soft dough. Roll dough
    into 1inch balls. Press a candy into the center of each ball, covering
    completely. Place 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool
    on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to
    cool completely. Roll cookies in confectioners sugar while still warm.
