A St. Patricks' Day Treat
Tuesday, March 13, 2012
The luck of the Irish were with Suzy when she stumbled upon these fun treats! Best part aside from eating them, is that they're made with a boxed cake mix!
Grasshopper Chocolate Mint Cake Mix Cookies
1 Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/2 cup oil
Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs together. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes (don't cook any longer than that. You don't want them to be overdone). Let cookies cool completely.
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 Tablespoons milk
2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
Green food coloring - about 8 drops
Mix together all the ingredients
Spread on top of each cooled cookie
2 1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 c. butter
Melt chocolate chips and butter together in a double boiler OR in a microwave
Spread melted chocolate on each cookie - use the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate around.
*These little cookies are super rich! If you didn't want them to be so rich, use a milk chocolate cake mix and milk chocolate chips.
