Grasshopper Mint Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies Recipe
An easy cake mix cookie bottom, topped with creamy mint frosting and covered with a perfect chocolate ganache.
- 15.25 ounces Devil's Food Cake Mix 1 box ( I like the ones with pudding in the mix the best. )
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup butter softened
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1½ teaspoons peppermint extract
- 6 drops green food coloring
- 1¼ cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- ⅓ cup butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs together (do not follow the directions on the back of the cake mix- disregard them completely).
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet. Bake for 6-9 minutes (don't cook any longer than that! You don't want them to be overdone). Let cookies cool completely.
Melt chocolate chips and butter together in a double boiler OR in a microwave (I usually microwave for 30-second intervals, then stir and repeat until the chips are fully melted).
Spread melted chocolate on each cookie- I have found that it works best to use the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate around.
Let chocolate set up and then serve.
These little cookies are super rich! I think that if you didn't want them to be so rich, use a milk chocolate cake mix and milk chocolate chips.
