Fudge Mint Double Cookies

If teaching has taught me one, it is that our differences most definitely make us stronger.

To suspect that age is the only marker of a human's intelligence is the perfect way to stop some of the best ideas imaginable to come into light.

Everyone you will ever meet knows something that you don't.
- Bill Nye

Around holiday times, however, these differences tend to sometimes be a sore subject, left with words unspoken so as to not offend and a lack of celebration seeming like the only safe way to make everyone happy.

Whatever holiday you celebrate, celebrate it well, and celebrate it with the people you love.  We may certainly be different, but truthfully that's half the fun.

The world could use a bit more reason to celebrate, and I'm happy to comply.

Cookies on cookies, during the holidays when indulgence runs second nature is the perfect time to debut these.  Five ingredients.  Maximum ease and wow factor.   More time for celebrating.

Let's do just that.
A very happy holiday to you.

Servings: Approximately 2 dozen cookies

- 1 box devil's food cake mix
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 Tbsp water
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 24 thin mint cookies (available all year round in various brands)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat cake mix, water, and softened butter until well combined.  Beat in eggs until well combined.  Roll approximately 1 inch dough balls in powdered sugar and place at least 2 inches apart on baking sheets.  Bake 9-11 minutes (rotating pans halfway through) until cookies have begun to set.  Immediately push a thin mint into each cookie.  Cool on wire racks completely.
