Today kicks off the first day.  My contribution are these Mint Chip Cookies.  They are the perfect addition to your holiday cookie exchange.  These are easy and and a definite hit with any mint lover!

1 vanilla cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. vegetable oil
3 Tbsp. water
green food coloring
1 c. Andes mint chips, frozen

Directions:
  1. Mix together cake mix, eggs, oil and water until well combined.  Add green food coloring until tinted to your liking.  Stir in chips.
  2. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.  (I like to use parchment paper to line my cookie sheet)
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Let cool completely.
