1 bx chocolate cake mix (any brand will do, but a fudge or dark chocolate cake mix works best)
1/4 c water
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 lg egg
1 c andes brand chocolate mint baking morsels
1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open boxed cake mix into a large bowl and add water, oil and egg. Mix together well. Add the chocolate mint morsels and mix well.
2 Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray. Place dough by the spoonfull on cookie sheets, 2 inches apart.
(I don’t spray my cookie sheets. I bake on parchment… I like it better. No greasing of pans, no messy clean-up!! And the cookies scorch less when baking on parchment paper.)
3 Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. (Each oven is different. Check them after 12 mins.)
Note: If you cannot find the Andes Brand of chocolate morsels, use crushed peppermint candies. It also needs to be said this is a wonderful cookie recipe if you want to make a variety…Just use whatever flavor of cake mix you like and add whatever you want to it…choc. chips, butterscotch chips, nuts, raisins, etc. But I think you will find the chocolate cake mix and the Andes morsels produce an exciting and rich flavor!
Bon Apetit’ Y’all!!
