Junior Mint Cake Mix Cookies

Thanks for Sharing!

Junior Mint Cake Mix Cookies are easy to make. A delicious chocolate cake mix and iconic Junior Mint candies make a great cookie! I love a homemade cookie. Store bought ones don’t tempt me… but homemade… yes. I love chocolate and mint so I thought I would try making one with one of my favorite mint candies… Junior Mints. This recipe took a little tweaking because  of the gooey mint center in the candies… but the results are so soft, chewy and packed with chocolaty mint flavor.  Another cake mix cookie I love is my Key Lime Cake Mix Cookies with Icing. The Cranberry Pistachio Shortbread Cookies are always a favorite during Christmas.

Making Junior Mint Cake Mix Cookies

These Junior Mint Cookies are perfect if you’re a chocolate mint lover! We took this batch of cookies over to a friends house the other night and they were gobbled up. I love how quick and easy they are to make.

2 chocolate mint cake mix cookies with milk

Add the cake mix, softened butter, eggs, oil, vanilla, and flour to a large bowl or a mixer bowl. I used a standing mixer, but you could mix by hand.

Mix until combined, then add the Junior Mints to the mixing bowl. Combine those by hand though, so the candy pieces stay intact.

Scoop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then bake up in your oven.

  1. using andes candies broken up of their chips sounds like a wonderful idea…i should of thought of that.

  2. 2 stars
    wow! what a mess! don’t do it! they tasted great but the jr mints oozed out everywhere! I used a level small cookie scoop; the sugar from the mints leaked out all over the place!
    SUGGESTION: bake the cookies; place mints on top of cookies while still hot OR place upon hot baked baked brownies! great tasting, great idea but not good idea to put in the cookie batter! i have owned/operated my home-based bakery for over ten years. you can trust my judgement. k

  3. I love cake cookies, they are so yummy! I made some with my granddaughter, but we used Andes mint chips. They didn’t last long.

  4. I’m assuming these are dropped by the tablespoonful not rolled out? How many cookies does the recipe yield? I look forward to your reply.
