Andes mints are one of my favorite treats this time of year. My Nana used to always have them at her house when we would visit at Thanksgiving, so they became a staple of the holiday season for my sisters and me. These cookies are insanely easy to make and are so delicious – good luck eating just one! They are great to whip up for a last minute holiday party or to leave out for Santa.
Andes Mint Cookies:
- 1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix
- 1/2 cup oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 package Andes mints
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix cake mix, oil and eggs until combined.
Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet and bake for 6-9 minutes- don’t cook any longer than that, you don’t want them to be overdone!
While the cookies are baking, unwrap the Andes Mints so they are ready when the cookies are done.
Take cookie sheet out of the oven and while the cookies are still very hot, place one Andes Mint on each cookie. In about 5 minutes, the mint will be melted. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out each mint like frosting.
