Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

   So I am totally suffering from  sugar induced zombie mode.  That is where I should be in a coma from all the sugar, but I just can't possibly be because I have way to much to do.  So instead I am feeling nauseous, tired and grouchy.  In fact my little 3 year old told me today, "Mommy if you keep getting so mad at me when I am naughty Santa won't bring you any presents this year!!!!"....  he is right... too bad he can't keep his own advice. My answer was well if you were not naughty I wouldn't get so mad.  Moral of the story I am grouchy because all I have done is baked and ate cookies for 2 weeks straight. I have probably made 20 dozen cookies,  but tomorrow I am on my last 5 dozen and then no more... at least for a week.
  That is a lot of cookies... so what have I been baking?  Here is one of my new favorites.  It is from Real Mom Kitchen  she is a pioneer of cooking blogs. I love hers.  I saw this recipe last week on the cookie exchange that I was part of on The girl who ate everything.  This recipe was posted on the day that I remembered I signed up to bring 3 dozen cookies to my church's live nativity that night (which was amazing)  I think they should do it every night until Christmas.  Anyways these cookies looked simple and delicious. A great combination.
   It is based in one of those box cake mix cookie recipes.  I used the Nestles mint and dark chocolate chip mix.   I LOVED them.  I whipped up these cookies so fast, then made another batch and froze them for part of my neighbor gifts.
 You could use Andes mints or those Hershey candy cane kisses cut up.  those are great, or anything you like as long as it is mint.  Mint and dark chocolate go hand in hand so nicely!
