Ingredients

  • 1 box Chocolate cake mix 15 oz. box
  • 1/3 cup Butter Unsalted, Melted
  • 2 Eggs Large
  • 1 tsp Peppermint extract Optional
  • 3/4 cup Chocolate chips Semisweet
  • 1/2 cup Peppermint chocolate baking chips I use Andes brand, Can also replace with Andes mint chocolate baking chips
  • 1/2 cup Melted chocolate Semisweet

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add chocolate cake mix, butter, eggs, peppermint extract and mix until combined.

  2. Stir in chocolate chips.

  3. Chill dough in the fridge for 30-40 minutes to make it easier to handle.

  4. Scoop out small portions of the dough and roll into balls. Oil your hands to make this step easier and to prevent stickiness, if necessary.

  5. Place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper.

  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes or until edges are firm and centers are slightly soft.

  7. Remove from oven and stick peppermint chocolate baking chips on top of each cookie. You will need to work quickly before cookies cool down.

  8. Let the cookies cool now.

  9. Drizzle melted chocolate over the cookies.

  10. Let it set and harden. Enjoy!
