This recipe is so simple, yet delicious. I made these a month or so ago and my son just happened to pick green for the icing color, perfect for the upcoming St. Patrick's Day. They would also be tasty with a mint icing.
1 Devils food cake mix
3/4 c shortening
Mix all the above ingredients together. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 min. Don't over cook! They will seem to be undercooked but don't be fooled. After a few min. remove from pan to cooling rack.
8 oz cream cheese
1/4 c butter, softened
2 1/2 c powdered sugar
(if needed add hot water to get desired consistency)
