I think I have mentioned before that once school started we had the goal to make a different type of cookie each Sunday. Some are old favorites, and some are brand new. This past Sunday we did brand new ones. These chocolate mint cookies use a cake mix as the base, so they are super easy. We doubled the recipe because one recipe doesn't make a whole lot, and we like lots of cookies at our house.
These are the Andes mint baking chips we used. Enjoy!
Chocolate Mint Cookies
1 box chocolate cake--devil's food, German chocolate or regular is fine
1/3 cup oil
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Mix all of the above together well. It will be a thick batter. Add in 1 cup of the Andes mint baking chips.
Roll into balls--or we use our medium cookie scoop to place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 350 for 8 minutes. When they come out of the oven, move to cooling rack and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
