Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Cookies Recipe
I love warm, freshly baked cookies. There is just something about warm and fudgy cookies that make them one of my favorite desserts.
Thanks to boxed cake mix, homemade cookies like these can be quick and easy to make.
Here is what you will need:
- CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX: devil’s food or chocolate fudge cake mix both work wonderfully
- OIL: vegetable oil or canola oil
- EGGS: 2 large eggs
- PEPPERMINT PATTIES: York peppermint patties are ideal, but generic work as well
How to Make Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies With Peppermint Patties
Simply mix, form, stuff, and bake!
- MIX cake mix, oil, and eggs to form a dough
- FORM dough into 1-inch balls and press down to flatten slightly
- STUFF with peppermint patties
- BAKE in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes
We topped our cookies with chopped Andes Mints before baking. This step is totally optional and the peppermint patty stuffed cookies taste amazing with or without them.
Other topping ideas include sprinkles or chopped peppermint patties.
Use a cookie scoop. The dough is sticky and hard to roll by hand. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop the dough into balls instead.
