Chocolate Mint Cookies

Chocolate Mint Cookies
Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 9 minutes per batch

Use a small ice-cream scoop to measure the perfect amount of dough each time. It also gives you a head start on rolling the balls.

1 (18.25-ounce) package devil's food cake mix
2 large eggs
1/3 cup canola oil
40 chocolate-covered mint-filled candies (such as Junior Mints)

1. Preheat oven to 350̊.
2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed just until blended.
3. Divide dough into 40 pieces. Press each piece of dough around 1 piece of candy, and roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake in batches at 350̊ for 9 minutes or until surfaces are dry and centers are soft. Remove from pan, and cool completely on wire racks. Yield: 40 cookies

These cookies are really yummy! Sorry I don't have a picture, they never last long enough to take on :)
