Chocolate and Mint are probably one of my favorite flavor combos. These cookies sure deliver on that too. Perfect for Saint Patrick's Day coming up. I found this recipe at Six Sister's Fun stuff. The name of the blog almost reminds me of a shop that I go to in the Summer time. There are some really good recipes on that website and just about everything looks good looks.
I am probably bad for not trying to make these cookies lighter. Sorry for that, but sometimes I just feel like making the real thing. I kind of want to go through some of the really fattening recipes on this website and try to make them lighter.
Grasshoper Mint Cookies from Six Sisters Stuff
Grasshoper Mint Cookies
1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix (I like the ones with pudding in the mix the best)
½ cup oil
½ c. butter, softened
2 Tablespoons milk
2 c. powdered sugar
1 ½ tsp. peppermint extract
2 ¼ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ c. butter
Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs together (do not follow the directions on the back of the cake mix- disregard them completely). 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.
Green food coloring (optional- I added about 8 drops to get the colors of green that I had)
Mix together all the ingredients (add more or less powdered sugar until you get the consistency you like). Spread on top of each cooled cookie.
Melt chocolate chips and butter together in a double boiler OR in a microwave (I usually microwave for 30-second intervals, then stir and repeat until the chips are fully melted). Spread melted chocolate on each cookie- I have found that it works best to use the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate around.
