Baking Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Mix together cake mix, eggs, butter, salt, cranberries and 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or rounded tablespoon drop the batter onto 2 parchment lined cookie sheets.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes until the edges are firm but the center is still a little soft.
  • Let cool on sheets.
  • Mix together the frosting and the ½ cup chocolate chips.
  • Spread a rounded tablespoon of frosting on the bottom of 1 cookie and place another cookie on top.
  • Refrigeration is not necessary but store in a cool place so the frosting does not melt.

Tips & Inspirations

Pour 2-3 cups of sugar into a sealable container. Combine with the zest of one lemon, shake well and store. Lemon infused sugar can be used immediately or kept for months, just like regular sugar.

Keep brown sugar soft by adding a couple of marshmallows to the bag.

To make crystallized honey liquid again make it liquid again, place the honey jar in a container that allows water to move around it freely. Run under a hot water tap (shaking occasionally) until the crystals have melted.

For a uniform bake, always scoop and bake the same size cookie. This will ensure your cookies cooked to just the correct doneness every time.
