These have to be some of the easiest cookies I've ever made.
And some of the tastiest.
Okay, so they do use a cake mix, which I generally try to avoid.....
but for these delicious morsels, I'm willing to make an exception.
Chewy, fudgy, chocolaty, with little chunks of minty goodness in every bite,
they're a huge hit wherever I take them.
Recipe: (adapted slightly from Taste of Home)

In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, butter, and water until well combined. Beat in eggs. Stir in Andes baking chips. Shape into 1-inch balls; roll in powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until set.
