Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies

There are several delicious cookies you can make with this simple recipe:

1 box Devils Food Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil

Mix ingredients.

From there you can wrap dough around mini peanut butter cups or Rolos and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. You can also sprinkle with powdered sugar if you'd like.

Or, you can bake cookies at 350 for 8-10 minutes. As soon as they come out of oven, immediately place an Andes mint on each cookie and let melt. Then take the back of a spoon and spread the melted mint on top of cookie. Let cool.

So easy and so good!
