004: Easy Holiday Cookies

Been invited to one too many cookie exchanges? Try this unique recipe for some ooh's and ahh's.

Chocolate Mint Cake Mix Cookies

1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup mint chips, like Hickory Farms Meltaway Mints (I use about half their bag, which is probably more than 1 cup!)

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix half the cake mix, softened butter, and eggs until creamy. Stir in remaining cake mix. (You may need to add 1-2 tbsp water if batter is too stiff to mix.) Mix in mint chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are set. Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
