    The Peppermint Chocolate cake mix cookies look awesome and easy. How many cookies does the above recipe yield?

    • Heidi says

      Thanks, Ginny… they are so easy and SO yummy! The recipe makes approximately 2 dozen, give or take. Hope that helps! 😉

    • Jennifer says

      At my Kroger they have the peppermint chips on the holiday baking display or on an end cap. Hope this helps. I’m in Georgia and Kroger, Publix and Wal-Mart usually carry them.

    Hi Heidi,
    Not sure you’ll get this, as your post is almost from a year ago. I looked in two places and the closest I could get to dark chocolate cake mix was Betty Crocker Super Moist Devil’s Food Cake. It calls for water though, and I noticed your recipe doesn’t. Are you supposed to leave the water out? It also calls for 3 eggs rather than 2.

    • Heidi says

      Hi Quinn… yes ~ you can substitute the Betty Crocker Devil’s Food Cake Mix. Just ignore the instructions on the box of cake mix, and use just the dry cake mix + follow the cookie instructions here, and they should turn out just fine. Hope that helps! 😉

    By the way, I substituted Andes Peppermint Crunch thin mints that I tossed in the food processor for a few seconds and it worked out just fine.

  4. Darlene says

    My cookie dough was very greasy from the oil and didn’t want to hold together in balls. Do you think maybe if I used a little less oil, like maybe 1/3 cup and water if needed would help?

    • Heidi says

      Hi Darlene ~ hmm… did you try chilling the dough in the refrigerator first? If it doesn’t want to hold together, it may just need to be chilled longer first. I haven’t tried less oil and adding water, but if you do… let me know how it turns out! 😉

    Made these with a sugar free cake mix and and sugar free starlight mint candies (crushed). Wonderful. My diabetic friends REALLY appreciated them.
