Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies

Today marked the start of my holiday baking. Trust me, I’m extremely ashamed…this is a VERY late start for me. To be honest, I didn’t want to make these. I have been DYING to make gingerbread truffles(recipe is soon to come!) but time was an issue tonight. So instead, I settled on this tasty treat. While they aren’t the fanciest of cookies, they certainly are delicious. And I know what you must be thinking…mint chocolate chip, cake, and cookies? Hey it’s Christmas…why not? Plus, these cookies are as good as they sound. They’re moist like a cake, chewy like a cookie, and chock-full of mint flavor.

The best part about these cookies is how easy they are to make. In less than 20 minutes, I had a batch of two dozen cookies. If you’re looking for a quick, tasty, inexpensive Christmas treat, it’s right here!

Enjoy!

After I taste-tested a few cookies (as every baker should) I packaged them up to give away to my co-workers in these cute little goody bags. If anything gets me excited for work, it’s this! Countdown to Christmas is on!
