I made these for a Christmas party this year and have been asked to make them again for 2 other parties. The perfect combination of chocolate and peppermint. I added a little green food coloring into the cream cheese frosting for a festive touch.

  • Mix cake mix, oil, eggs, and peppermint extract together in a bowl.

  • Roll the dough into walnut-size balls and space about 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the tops of the cookies start to crack, about 8 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool on the pan for about 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.

  • Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Add powdered sugar a little at a time to reach desired consistency, or to sweeten to your liking.

  • Spread filling between 2 cooled cookies.

Cook's Note:

I have also tossed in some crushed up candy canes into the filling.
