Homemade Golden Oreos

After making homemade Oreos it only seemed natural to try making golden Oreos with chocolate filling. My only change when making these again will be to use a regular yellow cake mix and not a yellow butter cake mix. These were really buttery. If you love butter than you will love these. If butter doesn't tickle your taste buds then try them with the regular yellow cake mix. This frosting is killer. I had a lot of filling left from the whoopie pies so I knew I wanted to make chocolate so I added cocoa powder. I could eat this frosting up with a spoon. Who needs to put it on anything?

2 box yellow cake mix, butter cake mix if you love butter
4 eggs
2/3 cup oil

Chocolate Icing:

1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/3 cups Marshmallow Fluff (I get the marshmallow fluff from Aldis and use the whole container)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 tablespoons cocoa powder or more depending on how chocolaty you want it


Pre-heat oven 350 degrees.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone mat. In a mixing bowl combine the cake mix, eggs, and oil with a mixer. I use my Kitchenaide. The batter will be stiff. Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll into balls. If you have a small cookie scoop you can use that. Place 1 inch apart and flatten slightly with your fingertips. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack or plate.

While the cookies bake make the frosting. In a mixing bowl beat together the butter, shortening, sugar, and marshmallow until well blended. Add vanilla and beat until smooth. Add cocoa, mix well and taste. Add more if needed.

Try and put same size cookies together. Flip over half of the cookies. Spread or pipe frosting onto the flipped over cookies. Top each frosted cookie with an unfrosted cookie to make a sandwich. Place cookies in an airtight container and store in the fridge.

Makes about 2 dozen
