Random Things From My WeekendPosted: May 1, 2006 | |
Here are a few non-knitting related highlights from my weekend…
–I cooked ham fried rice, one of my favorite easy dinners.
–I baked Andes Mint Cookies using a very simple recipe from a co-worker. These cookies are perfect for a chocoholic like myself!
1 box of any chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker’s Milk Chocolate Cake Mix)
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup oil
1 package of Andes Mints
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, chocolate chips, oil, and eggs. Drop small spoonfuls of the batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet and and bake for 8-10 minutes. While the cookies are in the oven, break the Andes Mints in half. When the cookies are done, drop half a mint on top of each cookie. Let them sit for 2 minutes, and then swirl the mints your finger (or a toothpick) to create the icing. Yields approximately 5 dozen cookies.
