Paula Deen Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookies

Surprise, surprise! Every one's favorite southern butter lovin' cook announced she has Type Two Beetus (or "the sugar" as old people like to say). Can't say I am shocked, but I must have known something was up because I made these cookies a week or so before her announcement.

A bunch of my girlfriends have an annual "Wine, Cheese, and Dirty Santa" get together every year around Christmas. We eat, drink, and do a gift exchange/steal/thing. This year it was pushed back a bit to accommodate every one's schedule, but I think it was nice to have something to look forward to after the Christmas craziness. My lovely friends Mary Claire and Mary hosted - Hi Guys!

Anyway, I wanted to bring something sweet, but also wanted it to be easy. Anything that uses a box mix works for me! Of course my Stop and Shop had every kind of cake mix out there except chocolate cake. Need red velvet? They had it. Devils Food? It was there. Strawberry? Plenty of boxes. Chocolate? Nope. All I could find was this fancy stuff:

"Decadent", but not sure how it would work. But I gave it a try.

Mixing everything up.

Cover and refrigerate

Roll into a ball and cover in powered sugar

Fresh out of the oven

Sprinkled with additional sugar

Final Product

The Verdict: Pretty good. They didn't turn out "gooey" though. They were soft, almost cake-like, but not gooey as I was expecting. Not sure if its the recipe to blame, or the cake mix I used. I ate a ton regardless - they pair well with a glass of cold milk!

Things to consider: You might not want to make/eat them everyday, or you might wind up with the Beetus as well! :)

Check out what I scored (by stealing) that night:

These adorable measuring spoons and cups from Anthropologie. I have already used them a couple times! Thanks Jenn!
