Ingredients

  • 1 package Duncan Hines® Decadent German Chocolate Cake Mix
  • ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp. butter, melted and divided
  • ¼ cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup EACH milk chocolate chunks and white chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 2 Tbsp. warm water
  • 1 cup cranberries, chopped
  • 1 cup sliced almonds

Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine cake mix, butter, yogurt and vanilla in a large bowl with wooden spoon until blended. Stir in chips and pecans.
  3. Blend small ingredient pouch with water, cranberries, almonds and remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter; set aside.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2-inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly and evenly top with small ingredient pouch mixture.
  5. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until set. Cool cookies 1 minute on pan. Cool completely on wire rack.
  6. Baking Tip: Use a 1 to 1-1/4-inch scoop to form dough into balls. For best results, bake one baking sheet at a time. If baking two sheets together, rotate pans halfway through baking.
  7. If desired, drizzle with melted Duncan Hines Home-Style Vanilla Frosting. To melt place ½ cup frosting in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High 10 to 15 seconds; stir until smooth.

Tips

Spliting cake layers

Spliting cake layers

I have found when I need to split one layer into two I use thread to cut through the cake. It is easier than trying to get them even using a knife. Once I get the thread even around the cake I cross the two ends and pull them crosswise which cuts the layer of cake into two pieces. You can also use dental floss but make sure it is not flavored as it sometimes will leave the taste behind on the cake.


Frosting Cakes Smooth & Shiny

Frosting Cakes Smooth & Shiny

After frosting your cake, dip a palette knife or small spatula into hot water and wipe. Then slide the heated knife over the cake, it'll melt the icing just enough to make the surface smooth and shiny.
