Why Andes Mints will never go out of business!

Tonight is book club! I'm the lucky host this month. I really am excited. We have the coolest book club. Our husbands think we're all crazy because it begins around 7 p.m. and has been known to go until well after midnight. How do they expect anything less...a good book, renewing conversation, amazing food, even more amazing really is the recipe for a perfect night, that none of us ever want to end.

Tonight's book; The Giver, by Lois Lowry. Tonight's menu includes; homemade fettuccine pasta with a chicken artichoke lemon cream sauce, green salad, strawberry lemonade, and key lime cheesecake for dessert. I'm fasting all day to save up the calories for tonight. (Don't worry I'll post the recipes next week.) This menu is why today's post will be short and sweet. I've got to get cooking.

But I am leaving you with a sinfully delicious chocolate cookie recipe. I have no idea who first came up with this genius idea. Probably someone at the Andes Mint test kitchen. This recipe alone guarantee's that their product will never run out of buyers! I hope you like it as much as we do.


1 devils food cake mix
½ C. oil
2 eggs
1 C. Chocolate Chips
1-2 pkgs. Andes Mints; unwrapped (Depending on the size of your cookies, you’ll need 25-35 mints)

1. In a large mixing bowl combine the cake mix, oil and eggs. Mix well.
2. Stir in the chocolate chips, until well combined.
3. Spoon ½ -1 inch scoops of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet, 12 at a time. Using the back of a spoon, slightly flatten the cookie dough.
4. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
5. Immediately after they come out of the oven, place one mint on each cookie. Let them melt for about 30 seconds to a minute. Then, using a knife, spread like frosting all over the top of the cookie.

These are SOO good! I tried them without the cake mix and mixing up the cookie base by scratch. But it was too much work! So I will be trying this way for sure! Thanks!
