Wow, Christmas, Chocolate, Peppermint........... needs no introduction!

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
A Sheet Pan lined with a Silicone Silpat Mat.

1 - Box of White Cake Mix. (I use Duncan Hines)
8 TBS Butter, melted.
1 Large Egg
1/2 tsp Peppermint Extract
1/2 tsp Vanilla
4 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature.
1 C Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
1/2 C  Milk Chocolate Morsels
1 C Chopped Oreo Cookie Pieces

In a Stand Mixer with a Paddle Attachment:
Cake Mix
Peppermint Extract
Mix until it forms a Dough.

Cream Cheese
Continue mixing just until combined.

Fold in, by hand, with a Wooden Spoon or a Silicone Spatula:
Peppermint Crunch
Chocolate Morsels
Oreo Cookie Pieces

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Use a 1 1/2" Cookie Scoop and drop dough onto the Sheet Pan.
Bake for 9 minutes.
Remove the Pan to a Rack to cool for 15 minutes.
Transfer to the Rack to cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!
