Double Chocolate Christmas Cookies


I make these every year during the holidays.  
They are easy enough for the kids to make and everyone loves them!

I was recently at one of my MOPS meetings and we put together this cookie mix.  You know, the ones where you place all the dry ingredients in a mason jar {these green holiday ones are super cute}, decorate the jar a bit and then attach directions for baking?  Yeah, that one.

I changed up the ingredients just a wee bit and then made them again when I got home.  You know, because my three year old asks to make cookies EVERY DAY. 

Seriously, we make them about twice a week.

Don't you wish you knew me?  Because I give a LOT of them away.

Anyway, we made these cookies again when we got home.  And then again.  And then I had to tell myself to STOP.

And I know you are probably thinking, Ally, come on, there are only 5 more days until Christmas.  I'm bogged down with work, last minute gifts, wrapping and family gatherings.  I do not have time to bake cookies.

Oh, but you do!

Because these only require 5 ingredients.  One being a devil's food cake mix.  They are so simple.  Dump everything into a bowl and bake.  It is THAT easy.

See?  You do have time to bake these.

And they are so pretty.

We made these for my son and daughter's preschool teachers, delivering them yesterday as it was their last day before Christmas break.  Each teacher got four healthy-sized cookies wrapped up in cellophane {100 count bags for under $5 here} and ribbon.

{And when we handed them to them, they got SO excited.  As baked goods are their fave.}

Alright, enough chat.  You have some baking to do.

You have the time!  These make a great last minute hostess gift.  And of course they look superb on a cookie tray.
