1 box chocolate fudge cake mix

2 big Y Large White Eggs

2 Big Y large white eggs ½ cup Big Y butter, melted and cooled

½ cup Big Y butter, melted and cooled

1 tsp. Big Y pure vanilla extract.

2 Tbsp. Big Y brown sugar

½ tsp. mint extract

1 drop green food coloring

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, butter, vanilla and sugar; the batter will be stiff. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets; pat each mound down a little bit. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Place chopped chocolate in a medium bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add heavy cream. Bring to just a boil, watching very carefully because if it boils for a few seconds, it will boil out of the pot. Pour over the top of the chopped chocolate and whisk until smooth. Allow the ganache to cool to the touch. In a medium bowl, combine frosting, mint extract and food coloring. Frost the tops of the cookies with the frosting. Add ½ tablespoon ganache in the center of the frosting and top with some chopped mint chocolate candy.
