We were in charge of bringing a treat to my sons preschool party and these little beauties are simple and yummy.  I love to bake cookies for my boys but don’t always have the time to them from scratch.

This is a simple way to make yummy cookies using a cake mix.  Plus, adding the Peppermint kiss makes them fun and festive.

 Easy Christmas Cookies

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies 

1 box chocolate cake mix
1/3-1/2 C oil (I used 1/3 C Canola oil.  More oil makes them fluffier but I like to reduce the fat)
2 eggs

Mix all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.

Roll into small balls and roll balls in sugar.

Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.  While still warm, insert a Candy Cane Hershey’s kiss in the center.
