Double Chocolate Junior Minties :: Hey, That's Pin-tastic!

Having just hosted my husband's family for our annual Christmas dinner on Saturday, I had a tough time choosing which recipe I would share for this week's installment of Hey, That's Pin-tastic! 

A baker and sweets-lover at heart, this recipe was too good not to share and with the countless Cookie Swaps often brought about during the Christmas season, I knew it would be the perfect recipe to whip up. 

I've made these cookies a few times now and at the request of my brother-in-law, mother-in-law and husband (yes, they're that good), I set to baking them again this year for our annual cookie swap. The ingredients are simple and the instructions, easy. Each year I tweak the recipe and cooking time just a bit and I think I've finally perfected it! 

Makes 3 dozen cookies

What You'll Need

2 boxes of Devil's Food Cake Mix
2 5oz boxes of Junior Mints
1 cup of oil
4 eggs

What You'll Do:

Preheat your oven to 350*

Mix cake mix, oil and eggs together in a large mixing bowl. Drop tablespoon-sized spoonfuls of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 5 minutes and remove from oven. Place two Junior Mints onto the center of each, pressing down gently. 

Replace cookie sheet in oven and bake for an additional 2 minutes.  Once finished, remove cookies from oven and use a toothpick or small butter knife to spread or "swirl" the melted Junior Mint. Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool slightly.

These cookies are absolutely delicious when still warm but even once they've cooled and set they are still deliciously chewy and gooey.
