One of the most popular recipes on our blog is our recipe for Andes Mint Cookies. I had a craving for them the other night, but was fresh out of Andes Mints . . . how does that even happen?!
Anyway, I had some mint chips leftover from Christmas and threw them into the batter . . . and these little babies were born!
I love making cookies using a cake mix- it doesn’t get any easier than that! However, I know that many of you prefer to bake from scratch, so you could use another chocolate cookie recipe or make a homemade cake mix to use in these cookies.
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 (16.25 oz) Devil’s Food Cake Mix (or your favorite flavor)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 (12 oz) bag mint chips (or any flavor of chips will work!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine cake mix (don’t use ingredients called for on the back of the box- just use the dry mix), vegetable oil, and eggs. Mix until completely incorporated. Fold in the mint chips and drop tablespoonfuls of dough on cookie sheet. Bake for 6-9 minutes (make sure you don’t overcook!) and remove from oven. Move cookies onto wire rack to cool (or eat while they are hot and gooey- they are amazing!).
Makes about 36 cookies.
