These chocolate turtle devils food cake mix cookies are just what you need as you send your kiddos off to school for the year! Curling up with a few of these, a glass of milk and all the TV you’re not allowed to watch while they’re home is what mom dreams are made of. They are so decadent for how easy it is to make them. Be warned-the caramel goodness is sticky and will cling hours after consumption causing you to look a lot like cookie monster as you welcome your children home for school. That happened to a friend of mine, not me.
This recipe is a continuation of our list of cookie cake recipes for the year with one variation: instead of butter I used oil! Oil was suggested for use when making actual cookies and with a little finesse it worked awesome! You can see some of our other cake mix cookies recipes here:
