Ingredients

Cookies:

  • 1 box of vanilla cake mix (480 g / 18.25 oz)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (113.4 g / 4 oz)
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
  • green food coloring

Filling:

  • 113 g / 4 oz. milk chocolate chips or chunks (1/2 cup)
  • 59.1 g / 2 oz. whipping cream (1/4 cup)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mix cookie ingredients together. Cover and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven at 180°C / 350°F. Put 1 inch balls onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart (cookies spread a lot while baking).
  3. Bake cookies for 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are set. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before transferring cookies to a wire rack; cool completely.
  4. Filling: In a microwave-safe bowl, add the cream and the chocolate; microwave for 30 minutes and mix (if chocolate is not completely melted, heat it for another 10 seconds). Chill for 20 minutes or until spreading consistency.
  5. Spread chocolate on bottoms of half of the cookies (about 1 teaspoon per cookie). Top with the remaining cookies.

To store: Place unfrosted cookies in layers separated by waxed paper in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Keep filling in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.

Before serving, thaw cookies, and filling. Assemble cookies as directed in step 5, assembling only as many cookies as you need at one time.
