Chocolate Mint Cookies

Pin It
Tonight's recipes are super easy and super yummy too.  I learned a cheater way of making really soft cookies from a friend at a scrap-booking event years ago.  She gave me the basic dough recipe and I have re-invented it over and over again through the years.  Hopefully you will try this recipe and let me know if you have ideas on other add-ins for the cookies.

Here's what you need:

1 box chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Devil's food)
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1 bag Andes' Creme de Mente baking chips

Now pay attention so I don't loose you in the long drawn out process here okay.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  In a bowl mix all the ingredients until well combined.
Using a medium scoop place cookies dough about 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
Mmmmmm, smell that minty chocolaty yumminess?  That's coming from your oven.....
These are very soft chewy cookies.    I would love to blame it on Harley but I couldn't resist any more while taking these pictures, but I'm sure you don't mind.  It helps get a good look at the milk, huh.

Serves - 2 -1/2 - 3 dozen
