Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
1 box Red Velvet Cake mix
1/2 C butter melted
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 package Andies Peppermint crunch candies
Mix together first 5 ingredients till smooth. It helps if you sift the cake mix first. Use a strong spoon! Stir in the peppermint candies.
Drop by spoonful on a ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Let rest for a minute or two on the try and move to a cooking rack.
I made "White Velvet Peppermint Cookies" with a white cake mix and used up the rest of the peppermint candies. Then you can alternate them on cookie trays! Super cute and yummy!
This is such a versatile recipe. Use different cake mixes and additions for endless possibilities! Like triple chocolate cake mix with peanut butter chips! Cherry chip cake mix with nuts. . . you get the idea! Enjoy!
