I can’t decide if the best part of these cookies are the flavors or colors.  Look at how beautiful these babies are?

I remember being little and eating Neapolitan ice cream.  I would always try to keep the flavors separate so that I could eat one at a time.

But not these cookies, I think they are best ate with a little bit of each flavor in every bite.

 

How to make Neapolitan Cookies with cake mix

You will need a vanilla and strawberry cake mix for these cookies.  Mix each one up separately.

All you need to add is 1/3 cup of oil and a couple of eggs for each mix.  Remember to whisk the dry cake mix and remove any lumps because they are impossible to get rid of once the dough is made.

I prefer to use a hand mixer to combine the dough but it can easily be done by hand.

To assemble the cookies, scoop a mound of each cookie dough.  I used a small cookie scoop for this job but you could use a heaping teaspoon.

Rolling Neapolitan Cookies

To get a smooth texture on the cookies, roll each mound of dough into a smooth round.

Then take one mound of each dough {vanilla and strawberry} and roll them together.  The better you combine them into one cookie the better they will bake together.

Use the same technique as these fun Brookies.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9-11 minutes or until the cookies are set.  It is so important to not over bake them.

Remove them from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.

When the cookies are cooled it is time to melt the chocolate.  I used dark chocolate melting wafers.  Start at 1 minute in the microwave, stir and add 30 second increments until your chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

How to dip Neapolitan Cookies in Melted Chocolate

Once the chocolate is melted, dip each cookie half way into it and then remove.

Place them onto a parchment {or wax paper} lined baking sheet until the chocolate sets up completely.  Once the chocolate has hardened, the cookies are ready to serve.

Making Cookies

Once your Neapolitan cookies have cooled, melt chocolate wafers for 1 minute and stir.  Continue to microwave in 30 second increments until the chocolate is melted and smooth.  Dip each cookie half way into the chocolate and place chocolate covered cookie onto a parchment lined cookie sheet to set.  Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
