Recipe For Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies


When I think of February I think of candy and chocolate. Who doesn’t want to receive some type of chocolate for Valentine’s Day? While I’m not a big chocolate cake person I do love a good chocolate cookie, but I didn’t have a lot of time to bake this year so I needed a quick and easy recipe.

I remembered pinning a recipe for crinkle cookies that used boxed cake mix for the base. I went to the recipe and sure enough it only had 3 ingredients. Because I can never leave any recipe as it is I thought adding mint to the cookies would jazz it up a bit. I added in crushed candy canes that I had leftover from Christmas as well as peppermint extract and it made a delicious chocolate mint cookie.
