Chocolate Mint Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies

I love a good cookie recipe and one that uses cake mix? Even better! Today I’m sharing with you how I made these yummy, soft and ewey, gooey chocolatey Chocolate Mint Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies! All things for the cookies were things I had on hand! Don’t have chocolate cake mix? Substitute vanilla or yellow and instead of mint chips add chocolate chips or caramel. The best part about these cookies is all the options you have for making different varieties! So since I had chocolate and mint, that’s what I ran with!


The recipe is a simple cake mix mixed with cream cheese and a few other ingredients for a deliciously EASY cookie! Make them now for Christmas and freeze the dough! OR give them to coworkers for gifts!! So many options!!
