Instant German Chocolate Cake Bites

This is an instant no-cook snack or dessert that makes a little or a lot to meet whatever is needed. I made up this recipe while on the road traveling on my birthday and could not make cupcakes. Buying a whole cake or box of cupcakes from a local bakery was out of the question because it would be too tempting to eat the whole thing and completely overload my sugar intake for the day and storing any leftovers in the RV is troublesome. So I figured it might be possible to make bite sized versions out of Devil's Food cookies and store bought German Chocolate icing. It turned out to be an amazing treat with the added benefit of being able to make exactly enough for each person with no storage problems. The cookies keep nicely in the pantry and the open tub of icing comes with a resealable lid and fits in the icebox door. If you love German Chocolate cake, give this one a try.


 1 bag Devil's Food Cookies (I like Snackwells™)
 1 tub German Chocolate Cake icing (the good kind)


Here are two variations depending on your preference for a ratio of cake to icing.

1) German Chocolate Cupcake Tops: Take one cookie and put a spoon full of icing on top. I find that it is easier to frost the flat side of the cookie if the icing is cold.

2) German Chocolate Whoopie Pies: Take two cookies and spread a layer of icing in between. This looks like a Whoopee Pie; a favorite southern treat.

Serves: 1 or more

You may notice that some of our recipes do not contain exact measurements for all ingredients. Cooking on the road is an art more than a science. We view each recipe as only a suggestion - a starting point for your own personal creativity.

We aren't usually dealing with food chemistry in these recipes since we aren't baking with leavening, etc., so feel free to use as much or as little of any suggested ingredient. Be creative and imaginative! Substitute the foods you like or have available for the ones in the recipes. And if you find something that turns out well for you, please share it with the rest of us.
