Cookie Dough Filled Fudge Cookies

Cookie Ingredients:

1 box Fudge Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and stir well.  Form into walnut sized balls and place on non-stick baking sheet.  Use a round glass to slightly flatten the dough balls.  Press some milk chocolate chips into the top of half of the cookies (these will be the top cookies).  Bake cookies for 8 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let sit on the hot baking sheet for another 5 minutes.  Place cookies on a wire rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2-4 T water

In a large stand mixer, cream together the the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Add the vanilla extract and mix.  Add the flour and salt and mix until incorporated, then add the chocolate chips.  Add the water, starting with 2 Tablespoons.  Add more water as needed until thick cookie dough forms.  Refrigerate cookie dough for about 30 minutes.

To assemble the cookies, match up your cookie tops and bottoms.  Take some cookie dough and roll into a ball.  Flatten slightly with your hand and put in the middle of two cookies.  Place some semi-sweet chocolate chips around the outside of the dough to make it look pretty.  They are ready to eat with a big glass of milk or a strong cup of coffee.  Enjoy!
