Choco-Mint Cookies From Cake Mix


Recently I’ve been updating and revising the recipes in my “Herb ‘n Cowgirl Bakes” cookbook. This week I’ve been working in the cookies section which got me craving to make some. Alas, I had little or no time.

Then I remembered the cinnamon-chew cookies a friend of mine makes for our church potlucks. She said they were made with a cake mix. That got me thinking – how about making something from the chocolate cake mixes I have? The end result was a choco-mint cookie with optional nuts.



Choco-Mint Cookies From Cake Mix


1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
2 eggs
1 cup chopped nuts

How to Make It

Remove butter from refrigerator and allow to soften. Meanwhile, clip several stems of fresh mint, rinse, and pat dry. Remove leaves from stems and finely chop. Combine cake mix and mint leaves in a bowl and stir to coat leaves. Add softened butter (micro-cook if needed to soften), eggs and chopped nuts. Stir until dough is an even consistency. Drop tablespoons of the batter onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes before removing cookies to a cooling rack.
