  • 1 devil's food cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup Nestle's Quik cocoa


  • 1 packet unflavored gelatine
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 cup Crisco
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound confectioners' sugar


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Blend all ingredients for cookie dough until you can shape the dough into a smooth ball. Let stand 20 minutes, loosely covered.
  3. Form dough into marble size balls. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Flatten each with a smooth bottom of drinking glass greased once and dipped into Nestle's Quik powder.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes.
  5. Remove at once from baking sheet to paper towels, and immediately flatten each cookie with a smooth spatula. Let cool 20 minutes.
  6. Soften gelatine in cold water. Place in a heatproof cup in pan of hot water until gelatine is transparent.
  7. Beat Crisco until fluffy, adding vanilla extract and confectioners' sugar a little at a time. Beat in gelatine mixture when it completely cooled, but not set or firm.
  8. When cooled, shape filling into 1-inch balls. Place between the two bottom sides of the cooled cookies and press gently until the filling has spread to edges of cookie.

Yield: 48 cookies
