Homemade Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies

This recipe is so easy! I miss Girl Scout Cookies during the year and these are a great replacement.

1 box devil's food cake mix
2 eggs
2 tablespoon water
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1/2 cup cocoa
1 12ounces package of chocolate chips
3 drops mint extract

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine cake mix, eggs, water, cooking oil, and cocoa. Blend well, this will be a sticky mess. Let stand for 20 minutes, then shape into 1/2 inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Spray a large spoon with Pam and smash dough down to flatten. Bake for 8 minutes and let them cool to room temperature.

Heat chocolate chips in the microwave or in a double boiler. When completely melted, stir in mint extract.  Spread melted chocolate on cookies or dip them in the chocolate.
