Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    For a decorative touch, spoon frosting into pastry bag fitted with star tip, then squirt frosting on each cookie. You can also use a star tip inside a food-storage plastic bag!
  • tip 2
    The secret ingredient in this recipe, cake mix, makes these cookies very light and the perfect chocolate base for the creamy frosting.
