Chocolate Mint Cookies From A Cake Mix

My Mom used to make a chocolate mint cookie that I think she made from a cake mix. They were soft and kind of moist. She would also dust them with powdered sugar. Can you help me find a recipe?

I have a recipe in one of my handwritten recipe notebooks. I’m not sure who the original recipe came from, but I remember tweaking it and coming up with the one below. I haven’t made them in a while, but they were quick and easy to bake up. I think I’ll have to bake up a batch this weekend.

Cake Mix Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 box dark chocolate cake mix
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Mix everything excpet the chocolate chips in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Put the cookie mix by the tablespoon on the cookie mix, leaving about 2 inches of space in between the cookies. They’ll start to spread quite a bit while they bake.

Bake them for 10 to 12 minutes or until the centers start to firm up. Cool for a few minutes before removing the cookies from the baking sheet.

Keep baking until all the cookie dough is gone and enjoy the cookies.

These simple cookies are as easy as they are delicious. Perfect for baking with the kids or when you want a simple to make treat.
