As those of you who follow me on Facebook already know – I have been working

on redoing my kitchen cabinets for the past few days. I have been MIA from my blog during that time.

We are almost done with the cabinet section we have been working on, and they are so

gorgeous! I will do a post about them soon, but until I get that ready I thought I would share

with you this cookie recipe that I found on Pinterest. They are super easy, with only 4 ingredients.

And the Andes’ mints melted on the top make them out of this world good!

I don’t have pictures of the process, so I am just going to show you pictures of the

finished product to get your taste buds going. I will post the recipe at the end!

Andes’ Mint Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 Betty Crocker Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 24 Andes mints
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In mixing bowl, mix together cake mix, egg, and oil until incorporated.
Roll cake mix into balls and place on parchment covered cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 9 minutes. Do not overbake!
While the cookies are still hot, press one Andes mint into the top of each one. Let them all sit for a minute or so, then use a knife to spread out the melted mint like frosting.
Then eat them all and bake another batch to share…
I am serious.. do it.
Not that I would ever do anything like that..

They are unbelievably good, and taste like you spent a lot of time on them!

And if you have never heard of Andes’ mints, they are the mints

you are given with your bill at Olive Garden.

You would not believe how many times I had

to eat there to get enough to make these cookies..

Ok – not really. I found mine in the candy aisle of our grocery store.

They come in a green box..

Here is a link to the recipe I found pinned on Pinterest

Six Sisters’ Stuff

And I will leave you with a sneak peek of my kitchen cabinets!

They are oak, and had that golden reddish color.

We used the Rustolium Cabinet Restoration kit and

gave them a new whitewashed finish.

    OK. I saw your post this morning, but refused to read it until AFTER I ate lunch so I wouldn’t be tempted to find something chocolate to curb the craving that I knew these cookies would induce. They look so delicious! I love Andes mints. More than that, I love simple recipes that seem like even I can do it. Thanks!

    I have a quick question. I just made these and they were a big pile of crumbs, the only difference was I used Pillsbury mix instead of Betty Crocker because that’s what I had on hand. Is that why? I Googled the recipe and on other sites it says “A box of devils food cake mix” and 2 eggs and 1/2 c oil. Does the brand make the difference? I’m totally drooling over the pictures of yours and can’t wait to try some! Thanks!!
