Wow Your Family With Andes Mint Cookies!! #FoodieFriday #Recipe

It's the weekend, and that means baking up some goodies for the family! Don't worry though, this week's FoodieFriday recipe is quick, easy, and delicious!! All you need to make some of the fidgets, mintiest, melt-in-your-mouth cookies ever is a box of cake mix, a bag of Andes mints, and a couple other ingredients you probably already have on hand!

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
2 Eggs

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.

These have always been a favorite in my house. We used to keep some in a jar on the coffee table until the dog decided to eat them. Now they stay in a cabinet.

What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information.
