Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 9 minutes
Chill 1 hour
Servings 30 cookies


  • 1 box cake mix 15.25 ounces- white or vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup cooking oil - canola or vegetable will work fine
  • green food coloring I like gel paste - I used 1-2 drops of mint green
  • 1 cup Andes mint pieces
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips + more for the tops of the cookies after baking if desired
  • ¼ cup mint chocolate chips + more for the tops of the cookies after baking if desired


  • Combine the cake mix, eggs, and cooking oil in a large mixing bowl. Stir until combined.
  • Slowly add the food coloring - 1-2 drops at a time until you reach the desired color. (keep in mind that the color can intensify as the mixture chills)
  • Fold in the Andes mint pieces and the winter mix of chocolate chips.
  • Cover and chill the dough for at least 1 hour, but preferably 2 hours.
  • Once the dough has chilled for at least an hour, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment and set them aside.
  • Form the dough into balls - about 2 tbsp each - making them a bit oblong so that they stand taller than they are wide.
  • Place on the prepared baking sheets 2" apart.
  • Bake 7-9 minutes - they will look slightly soft in the center but will be set around the edges.
  • If desired, press a couple of extra chocolate chips into the tops of the warm cookies before they set.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to continue cooling.
  • Once cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
