My husband is the biggest cookie snob so when I made these last minute treats for my Church Choir I thought for sure he would notice they were from a box, but nope! He ate a stack of them and loved them. I have made some cake mix cookies before that were more “cake like” but these turned out soft, chewy and delicious! Perfect Christmas treat.
1 box chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines dark choc fudge)
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp peppermint extract
Mix together, it will be a little sticky so I just plopped each scoop straight into the powdered sugar, coated it, then dropped it on the sheet. Instead of Candy Canes I used the Andes Peppermint pieces which I put on the cookies right as they came out of the oven. Enjoy!!
