Today, I have another quick cookie recipe that you can throw together in no time. I have shared my recipe before for cake mix cookies. However, I decided to dress it up for the holidays by making a Mint Chocolate Chip version. I used the Nestle Dark Chocolate and Mint Chip mix. However, some other great options would be Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips, Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips, or even chopped up Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses. I just purchased the candy cane kisses last year and fell in love with them. Basically use whatever you like as long as it is mint. I did enjoy the combination of dark chocolate along with mint in this cookie.
I also wanted a rich chocolate cookie to compliment the mint. I decided to use a dark chocolate cake mix, but a devil’s food would work. Also, brown sugar helps add richness and softness to cookies so I added a little of that too. The cookies turned out so yummy. Loved them and I hope you love them too.
