As a little girl, my mom always made holidays super special and memorable (even the not so famous holidays, like St. Patrick’s Day). She would decorate the house & mantel, make a holiday-themed treat and create a fun craft for us to do together. And every year or so a little leprechaun would visit the kids and leave little treasures. It was pure magic. In an effort to be half the mother my mom was, I’ve been trying to follow her footsteps and make holidays super fun. For this St. Paddy’s Day, I started thinking about St. Patrick’s Day recipes and made these chocolate mint cookies for my girls. They are embarrassingly easy, yummy and perfect for class parties, neighbor gifts or to enjoy a very green day.
If you end up making them, I would love to hear what you think or see pictures of your final product! RECIPE BELOW.
MINT CHOCOLATE COOKIES
1 Devil Food Cake Mix
2/3 Cup Crisco
Dark Chocolate Mint M&Ms
Cream cake mix, crisco and eggs. Take dough and rool into 2 inch circle balls. Place on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 9 minutes. It’s best to undercook these.
While the cookies are hot, press four or five Mint M&M’s into the warm cookie. Cool and enjoy!
