Devils Food Cake Mix; (preferably one with pudding in mix)
1/2 cup oil
2 Eggs
Peppermint Frosting
1/2 cup butter; softened
2 TBL milk
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
green food coloring; (optional to get that green icing in pic)
Chocolate Ganache
2 1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup butter

Original recipe makes 1 Servings




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.


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.

**These little cookies are super rich! I think that if you didn't want them to be so rich, use a milk chocolate cake mix and milk chocolate chips. **
