Food: Butter Pecan Cookies & Salted Chocolate Frosting


I’ve been thinking about this combination for some time now. I love butter pecan anything and dark chocolate anything, so I imagined the combination would be delicious.

And it is. So good.

Butter Pecan Cookies & Salted Chocolate Frosting

makes about 26 cookies

  • 1 butter pecan cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup oil (half oil/half applesauce is ideal)
  • 1/3 cup flour
In a large bowl, mix above ingredients together. The dough will be really soft and gooey. Spoon small portions of dough into a shallow bowl of granulated sugar and cocoa. Coat evenly and place 2-3 inches apart on a lined or greased cookie sheet. Bake cookies at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes. The cookies will be soft, so allow to cool on the pan for a couple of minutes before moving onto a cookie sheet. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
  • 5 T butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa (dutch process is the bomb)
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream
  • 1/2-1 cup powdered sugar
  • dash salt
In a double broiler, melt butter and chocolate until smooth, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat. In a new bowl, combine melted cocoa, whipped cream, powdered sugar and salt. Mix on medium speed until combined and smooth.

Then just like that, watch them disappear. Hope you enjoy!
