For the cookies, you will need:
1 Devil's Food cake mix
1/2 c. oil (coco oil, might even try apple sauce next time)
Combine the cake mix, eggs and oil. Roll the dough into 1" balls and slightly squish them flat. Place on a baking sheet, baked at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes being careful not to overcook them. Remove to wire racks to cool.
For the icing, you will need:
1/2 c butter, softened
2 1/2 c powered sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
Garnish: 4-5 candy cane pieces, crushed
Cream the butter. Beat in the peppermint extract and powdered sugar, lastly adding in the milk. The easiest way to ice the cookies is to put the icing in a decorating or ziploc bag. Cut the corner and pipe the icing onto the top of the cookies. Immediately dunk the icing into the bowl of candy cane pieces and viola! These cookies are out of this world and so glad I found the recipe!
