And you can’t get any easier than these cookies!. They start out with a cake mix which pretty much does away with measuring flour, sugar, baking soda and salt and brings it down to a few liquid ingredients. And the best part about it – they’re absolutely amazing!

Full of Andes mint chips, which if you’ve never had them, are a delicious blend of chocolate and mint that definitely says “Christmas”! They go perfectly with a glass of milk for an after school treat or a hot cup of coffee for that mid-morning pick-me-up.

I colored mine with a little green food coloring to make them more holiday-ish but I think I would deepen the color a little more when I make them again (which looks like it might be soon since they are almost all gone!) . Hey wait, save one for me!

Servings: 3 dozen
Author: Linda Warren
  • 1 15.25- oz boxed white cake mix (I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Green food coloring (optional)
  • 1-1/2 to 2 cups Andes Creme de Menthe Baking chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix with butter, egg and extract. Stir with spoon to mix well. Add food coloring until desired color is reached. Stir in baking chips.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, place mounds of dough 2" apart on prepared cookie sheets. Press down slightly with back of spoon.
  4. Bake 8-10 minutes. Do not overbake as cookies will turn crisper as they cool.
  5. Place cookie sheets on wire racks for 3-5 minutes then remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
