I made these for our family night last week and they were such a hit I just had to share them. The best part is how quick and easy they are. Literally, you can make these from start to finish in about 30 minutes. Mixing, baking, cooling and frosting, all done in under half an hour! So, here we go with the easiest recipe for mint cookies you'll ever find...
1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
1 bag Andes Mints (you'll need about 24 individual mints)
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix eggs, vegetable oil and cake mix until blended. Drop spoonfuls of dough on a cookie sheet. Bake for 6-9 minutes. Be careful not to overtake; because the cookies are so dark, it's easy to burn without even knowing it! Remove cookies to a cooling rack and immediately place an Andes mint on top of each cookie. Let it sit about 5 minutes, then smooth the melted mint with a knife, just like frosting. Enjoy with a glass of cold milk! If you happen to have leftover cookies the next day (not likely, but just in case!) you can warm individual cookies in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
