Searching around Pinterest always brings baking inspiration! So it wasn't any surprise when I came across Inside BruCrew Life's Oreo Peppermint Crunch Cookies, I had to try them. Only while making the cookies, I came across a little problem - I didn't have all of the ingredients. So the Andes mint cake mix chocolate chip cookies were inspired by the Oreo Peppermint Crunch Cookies.
Using Betty Crocker's cake mix cookie recipe, I added chocolate chips and Andes baking mints to create the cookies. You could use a chocolate cake mix if you want to make chocolate chocolate cookies. This is a quick to make easy recipe you can make with your kids during the week or for a weekend project. With Valentine's Day coming up, you can use a strawberry cake mix for pink cookies or add green food coloring for St. Patty's Day. It is a versatile recipe that will be eaten quickly.
