When I bake a batch of marble cookies, they don’t last long in our house! My girls LOVE these cookies so much!
First, the back story on these cookies…the recipe comes from a good friend of mine. This is her signature cookie. You know what I mean, she is known in our community for these cookies! When you see them served at a teacher appreciation luncheon or sold at the school bake sale, you know SHE made them! In fact, my older girls were always glad to be in class with one of her kids because they knew marble cookies would be brought in to celebrate their birthdays.
So with her permission, I am sharing her recipe today.
- box of Duncan Hines marble cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup oil
In a large bowl, mix together the white part of the cake mix, the egg, water, and oil. Combine thoroughly.
Then add the chocolate chips and mix together. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix the chocolate part of the cake mix with an additional tablespoon of water. It may be thick and difficult to stir, and you may be tempted to add more water…but don’t.
Next, mix 1/4 of the white batter with the chocolate part. Once again, it will be thick and hard to stir. That is normal.
Then swirl that into the remaining batter in the large bowl.
Finally, form 1-2 inch balls of the batter on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. The cookies will just begin to “crack” on top. Be careful not to overbake.
Serve and enjoy! Be sure to grab one for yourself because they won’t last long!
And a special thank you to my “marble cookie friend” for sharing her recipe with me all those years ago…my family appreciates it, also!
