Cake mix makes these cookies easy and delicious and the peppermint buttercream makes these cookies amazing.  My family simply loves Hershey’s Peppermint Kisses.  So, I used them to make a buttercream frosting which was fantastic.  It was perfect between two soft and fluffy white cake mix cookies.

These peppermint cookies scream Christmas.  They are not only delicious but pretty with the red and white colors in the frosting.  Your family and friends will think you bought gourmet cookies from a bakery but you made them quick and easy.  Seriously, you can whip up these cookies in less than 30 minutes including baking time.  They only take 10 minutes to bake.

First Step: Cake-Mix

  • Using an electric mixer, blend the cake mix, eggs, and oil.

Second Step: Bake Cookies

  • Drop cookies in one tablespoon-size on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I use a one tablespoon size ice cream scoop.
  • Cook 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Third Step: Stuffing

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the softened butter and shortening until creamy.
  • Slowly beat in the confectioner’s sugar and peppermint flavoring.
  • Chop the Candy Cane Kisses into small pieces.
  • Fold in the chopped Kisses into the butter mixture and sugar mixture.
  • After the Cookies have cooled, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of filling to a cookie and top it with another cookie.
