Mint Crinkles

For St. Patrick's Day the kids and I made these pretty Mint Crinkles.

Super cute and delicious. Enjoy!

Mint Crinkles
Makes about 2 dozen


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • green food coloring -see note


  1. Combine butter, eggs and cake mix, mixing until well combined.
  2. Add 1/4 cup powdered sugar, peppermint extract, and food coloring. Mix well.
  3. Place remaining 1/4 cup powdered sugar in a shallow dish. Roll dough into tablespoon-sized balls, roll in the powdered sugar to coat, and place on baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Let cool before serving.

Notes: I use Wilton gel icing coloring, which is difficult to measure. I used the color Kelly Green by Wilton. Recipe from Jen's Favorite Cookies.
