  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 8 oz cool whip
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl combine cake mix, ginger, cloves and cinnamon.
  • Once that is combined stir in molasses.
  • Then add in the egg and cool whip making sure the mixture is well combined.
  • Drop spoonfuls of batter into the powdered sugar and roll them around so they are completely coated. The batter is really sticky so this part gets a little messy.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cool then enjoy!
