'smores hamantashen. (from cake mix. shh.)

last year i didn't have a baby.

this year i have a (deliciously wonderful) baby.
this purim = cake mix hamantashen.

it's a thing. 

a very, very good thing. 

but not as good as this thing.

i concluded the post about the great hamantashen project last year with the following promise:
so, though this project proved slightly ridiculous in the end, and i can really only claim that the cookies might be identified as part of the triangle family, it made me happy to give out soft, moist, interesting, non-brick-like hamantashen to family and friends. but next year i'm only making one kind. i've already decided. 'smores hamantashen!!!!

it's good to keep your word.

i hereby give you 'smores hamantashen (from a cake mix)!


1 box yellow cake mix
1 box gingerbread or spice cake mix
1 1/2 cups flour
3 eggs 
3 tablespoons water (or more)
7 bars hershey's chocolate
mini marshmallows

to make:
1. preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. combine all ingredients in a bowl. you should have a thick, kind of hard dough. add more water as needed. 
2. either roll the dough out on a floured surface and use the top of a cup to cut out circular shapes or roll small balls in your hand and then flatten with the bottom of a cup. 
3. fill with two pieces of chocolate and three mini marshmallows--it's important for the marshmallows to be on top of the chocolate or they'll melt into the cookie dough.
4. fold the sides up and pinch to form a triangle leaving the marshmallow peeping through the top. arrange on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. 
5. bake for 7-9 minutes.


if you want to go a more simple route, this will work with a box of cake mix, one cup flour, two eggs, and 2 tablespoons water. give or take.

next year i'm thinking something involving oreo...
