Girl Scout Mint Cookies (Copycat)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by SaffronMeSilly

I got an email from my mom with a bunch of copycat recipes. Most of them are already posted on zaar, but this one isn't so I thought I'd go ahead and get it out her. Enjoy. Servings and yield are guesses, as I have not actually made these yet.

Haven't made this yet, but I would guess a brownie recipe might make it better than box cake recipe... Less "cakey" , hold together better.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 340.19 g box devil's food cake mix (or normal size cake mix box)
  • 2 eggs
  • 29.58 ml water
  • 29.58 ml cooking oil
  • 118.29 ml cocoa
  • 340.19 g package chocolate chips (or normal size bag of chocoalte chips)
  • 0.13-0.19 ml wilton's candy mint extract


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix, eggs, water, cooking oil,and cocoa. You will need to blend this together well, this will be a very sticky mess.
  3. Let stand for 20 minutes, and then shape into very small 1/2 inch balls. Place these balls on a cookie sheet 2 inches a part, and smash down flat. You will need to spray a large spoon with Pam to make them flat.
  4. Bake for about 8 minutes. Let cool until they reach room temperature.
  5. Heat chocolate chips in either the microwave, or in a double boiler. When completely melted add a couple drops of the mint flavoring. Be carefull not to add too much, it is a powerfull flavoring.
  6. You can either spread the melted chocolate on the cookies, or you can dip the cookies into the chocolate.
