  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 18 peppermint patties the small ones
  • Powdered sugar for sprinkling


  • Beat together the cake mix, eggs, and oil until well combined and a sticky dough forms.
  • Place dough in the fridge for 20 minutes to chill. If you skip this step, the dough will be very hard to work with, but if you're in a hurry just make sure your hands are cold by running them under cold water after you shape each cookie.
  • Grab a golf ball sized ball of dough, roll into a ball, and flatten it into a disc.Place a peppermint patty in the center and bring the excess dough up and around the patty to cover it.
  • Repeat with remaining dough and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet 2 inches apart from each other.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 9 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle on powdered sugar.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
