Fudge Round Copycat

Thanks to my friend Gerard for sending me this recipe he found for a copycat version of Little Debbie Fudge Rounds. I love Fudge Rounds, and these were close. Next time I need to press down the tops of the cookies a bit more so they are not as puffy. One other benefit of these cookies is how easy they came together. If you don’t want to make the filling, just add some chocolate chips to the cookies, and you’ll still have a great treat.

For the cookies
2 eggs
1 Devil's Food cake mix, (11 - 12 ounce package- I used Pillsbury)
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine

For the filling
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine at room temperature
1/4 cup baking cocoa
2 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt one stick of margarine. Allow to cool slightly.
In a small bowl, beat the two eggs.
Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Stir in melted butter and beaten eggs.The dough will be very sticky.
Roll dough into 32 balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 minutes. Cool cookies completely.
For the filling, cream together the remaining stick of margarine, cocoa and powdered sugar. Add milk if necessary so the filling is of spreading consistency.
Spread about 2 teaspoons of filling onto 16 cookies. Top with remaining cookies.

Yields 16 sandwiches
