Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies Recipe

These chocolate mint crinkle cookies are a favorite because they are so easy to make and they look really fun and festive!

We make up a batch for St. Patrick’s day and for Christmas (and several other times of the year just because!!)

We’ve even mixed up the cake mix flavors, when we’re not adding mint extract, to create all sorts of yummy, unique combinations!

These are perfect for St. Patrick's Day! I love cookies with powdered sugar on the top as well. Just tried to talk my sister into adding powdered sugar to the cookies she was making. Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party!

Wow, these cookies look delicious, and I love the fact that they're so easy to make. Thanks for sharing. I'd also love to try making them with lemon flavored cake mix and extract, and add in some lavender buds.
