Looks lovely!!! I have some listings in the "Daves Cookbook" section.
Have to check the address on the net for the sugar cookie that I found last year-best one I have ever had. It is but will check to make sure. Hundreds of recipes there.

I have a very easy cookie recipe. My whole family loves these!

Easy Chocolate Mint Snowcaps

1 pkg Fudge or Devil's Food cake mix
2 Eggs
2/3 C Vegetable oil
1 pkg Andes Candies chocolate mint chips (or mint chocolate chips)
1/2 C Confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 350

Combine cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil until well mixed. Stir in chocolate mint chips. Chill dough for 15 minutes if sticky.

Roll dough into 1" balls, then roll each ball in powdered sugar. Place 1" apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will take shape and get crinkled tops as they bake.

i tried doing a search to see if i could find the size package that would be in the stores. but most online places sell them in 5# buckets... way too much.

in the recipe, it also says, Mint chips... so i would think you could use the chocolate chip sized bags... i think they are 12oz bags, just in mint baking chips.

Just made the snowcapped cookies.

I substituted starlight mints( the white hard candy with the red stripes) for the chips/andes , ground them up -(actually smashed) with the edge of the rolling pin, then mixed them in with the powdered sugar. Also, I doubled dipped them in the powdered sugar. Geeeeez, I love chocolate mint flavors. They are tasty, with the only drawback being that the melted hard candy chips like to stick to the cookie sheet a bit. Just a bit.

Use your regular spritz recipe. Put food coloring in the dough, and there is no decorating needed. No two cookies are the same.
