Dark Chocolate Heart Cookies

 These cookies taste a bit like Oreos but they're soft, and easy!

1/4 Cup butter softened
3 oz cream cheese softened
1/3 cup simi -sweet chocolate chips, melted
1 egg
1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix

Frosting: One Can of your choice, I used Strawberry
(you'll have a lot extra)
Heat oven to 375 in medium bowl, combine butter and cream cheese, beat until smooth. Add melted chocolate and egg, beat until well blended. Add cake mix, beat until well mixed. On light floured surface, roll half of dough at a time to 1/8 inch thickness, cut with floured 3 inch heart shaped cookie cutter. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Cookies do spread during baking.
Hint: I used 2 peices of parchment paper to roll out and cut cookies. I removed the extra dough and slid the paper with cut shapes onto cookie sheet. You don't have to pick up the cookies and transfer them. :)
Bake at 375 for 7-9 minutes, do not over bake. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets, then 10 minutes on cooling rack.
When cool: Place frosting in ziplock baggie, cut slight corner off of bag and squeeze designs on the cookies. You can microwave chilled icing for 10 seconds to soften. Yum!!
