My sister told me about a cookie recipe she tried that she’d seen on Facebook. I see things that look delicious just about every day on Facebook… it’s not a good place to browse, if you are feeling even a little bit hungry. If you like Andes mints and are a fan of chocolate, then these cookies may be more than you can resist! And they are so quick and easy, if you have the ingredients on hand you can whip them up in just a few minutes. I have renamed them with a label more appropriate!
1 chocolate cake mix
2 large eggs
½ cup oil (I used Olive Oil, my one attempt to make them more healthy!)
Stir ingredients until well-mixed… it only takes a few minutes.
Place by spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Makes 24 cookies.
Bake at 350 degrees for 6 to 10 minutes, depending on your oven.
While cookies are baking, unwrap 24 Andes mints. I think next time I’ll try cutting them in half… I think half a mint might be enough, because there is a lot of “frosting” with a whole mint. When cookies are firm to the touch, take them out of the oven and place one mint on each cookie.
Return them to the oven for a few seconds to soften the mints.
