Baker's Review Wednesday 34: Grasshopper Mint Chocolate Cookies

Grasshopper Mint Chocolate Cookies

Cookie bottom:
1 Devil's Food Cake Mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs

Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs together (do not follow the directions on the back of the cake mix- disregard them completely). Roll balls of dough and place on baking sheet.  Press down slightly.  Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes . Let cookies cool completely.

Peppermint Frosting:
1/2 c. butter, softened
2 Tablespoons milk
2 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract
Green food coloring (optional)
Mix together all the ingredients.  Spread on top of each cooled cookie.

Chocolate Topping:
1 c. milk chocolate chips
3/8 c. butter
Melt chocolate chips and butter together in a microwave. Spread melted chocolate on each cookie (or in my case, put in a Ziploc bag, cut off the corner, and do a little swirl on top like frosting.  I cooked this for 30, then 15 seconds, and it was like to much - crazy!  But it still tasted okay and I thought it was kind of cute!)
{Recipe adapted from Six Sisters' Stuff}

"The frosting's really good.  I like the cookies because the frosting's really good."
Forrest, 7

"They were simply delicious!"
"They were very delicious and I enjoy eating them."
Tara, 13

"They're really good."
Christopher, 12
Yes, they were very good.  Have you ever had grasshopper brownies?  They're similar to those, but in cookie form.  I thought they were yummy-licious!  I would definitely recommend that you try them:)
Did you bake something good (or maybe not so good) this week?  Link up below with Baker's Review Wednesday!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday!
