Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies… or Why My Pants are Tight

I couldn’t decide on a title. 


Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies!  A couple months ago I discovered my most favorite and easiest way to make Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies…. CAKE MIX.  Yeah, the recipe is on the side of the box, so this isn’t exactly groundbreaking.  But to me it kinda is. 

You need all this:

The recipe on the box call for nuts.  But I think nuts are stupid.  So I threw in some Andes Mints.  They are so smart… and delicious!  And x-nay on the vanilla, it’s not needed. 

And then about 7-10 minutes later, you have awesomeness.  About 3 dozen awesomeness-es, actually.

They are delish!  I may or may not have eaten a couple dozen in a day or two. 

*ALSO* if you decide to save some of the cookie dough in your refrigerator in a log shaped form in a Ziploc bag….. your 5-year-old will later say “Mom!!!!!! Someone put POOP in the fridge!”

Here’s the recipe I use and love:

1 Box Duncan Hines Chocolate Cake Mix (other brands don’t turn out as well, I’ve found)

1/4 C brown sugar

1 stick-o-butter, melted

2 eggs

1 C chocolate chips

1 C mint baking chips

Combine first 4 ingredients, add in chips. Plop spoonfuls onto your baking sheet. 

Bake at 350, 7 minutes on a pan, or 10 minutes on a stone.

  1. I made those last school year for a auction, but I used peanut butter chips (and no mint). I don't usually like chocolate cookies, but wished I could have kept them all to myself.


I love hearing from you! Thanks!
