A St. Patricks' Day Treat

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

Cookie bottom:
1 Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs

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.

Peppermint Frosting:
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

Chocolate Topping:
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.
