One of my favorite things to eat during the holiday season are those little chocolate covered peppermint sticks that people like to stir into their coffee. This Cake Mix Peppermint and Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe tastes similar to holiday coffee stirrers, but they are cookies!
They are made with a boxed cake mix, so they are really very easy to make, AND you don't have to worry about buying a bunch of baking supplies that you wouldn't normally use if you aren't an avid baker.
