¼ cups water
1 cup vegetable shortening

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 400℉ (200℃).

Combine cake mix, eggs + water, oil and cocoa powder.

Blend well until you can form it into a ball.

Let stand 20 minutes.

Form dough into ½-inch balls placed 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheet Flatten each ball with bottom of a greased once drinking glass that has been dipped in Nestle's Quik powder to deepen the color of the cookies to resemble the originals.

Bake 8 minutes.

Immediately out of the oven, flatten each cookie with the back of a pancake turner.

Let cool 20 minutes while you prepare the filling.

The filling:

Soften the gelatin in ¼ cup of cold water and place in a pan of hot water until clear.

Meanwhile, beat the shortening until fluffy, adding the powdered sugar a little at a time.

Add the vanilla and cooled gelatin and beat 6 minutes.

Shape into 1-inch balls and place between the bottom sides of two cookies, pressing them gently but firmly together until the filling becomes nicely rounded at the edges.

Chill about one hour to set the filling.
