Fudge Bombs are what I'm calling these beasts

Update: NAME CHANGE! I polled Facebook, and it was decided Molten Chocolate Fudge Bombs should be the name.. Now I feel obligated to figure out what ingredients to add to make sure they truly are overflowing with molten chocolate.. Instead of just a partial melt magma state.

You can read about my attempts to use up old ingredients here, but the short version is, I found some cake mix that I wanted to use up, and I found an event to which I could donate baked goods. All I had left to do was find a recipe.
Check out my fancy-schmancy stand mixer.
The recipe is pretty simple - just a few ingredients makes for a quick fix if you need something to serve, and these seem a lot fancier than they are. Make dough, roll in powdered sugar, bake and eat. Or impress your friends.

The only problem with these cookies is that the dough forms so well that there's nothing left to scrape from the bowl and justify your excessive cookie dough consumption while baking.

Wanna lick the bowl?
Prep, roll, bake. Pretty simple.

Take lots of pics for Instagram..

Risk overcooking the cookies to take more pics...

Oh, the sacrifices I make for this blog..

Control yourself. Don't eat too many. Then you can't show off how good they were if no one else can taste them.
Here's the recipe for this chocolate goodness:
Adapted from food.com

Fudge Bombs Molten Chocolate Fudge Bombs

  • 1 box of devil's food cake mix 
  • 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil (or canola, or corn, or.. whatever makes you happy)
  • 2 large eggs
  • Powdered (aka confectioners') sugar, for rolling

Mix ingredients. Roll into balls. Let chill in the fridge for a minute (or 30, just to be safe). Roll in powdered sugar. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes, or until you're pretty sure the outside is cooked. Probably think about letting them cool. Eat. Eat. Eat.

PS. The chilling part isn't set in stone. But I find that cold cookie dough makes for yummier, melt in your mouth cookies. Also, it kept the sugar from being absorbed into the oil from the cookie dough, so they came out of the oven with the great crackled look.

PPS. I used less than 1/2 cup of oil. I had corn on hand, and I was afraid it would make the cookies taste funny. Fortunately, it didn't, AND I could pretend I was healthier for having less oil.

Hope you enjoy!

Check out all the sugar... Yeah!
