homemade peppermint oreos updated

'tis the season for all the treats. they are everywhere, and i'm not really helping things much. i like giving gifts and treats so i usually do a christmas treat for my co-workers. everyone LOVED these homemade peppermint oreos. i have made them in the past, but i changed things a little this year.

tips for success
use shortening instead of oil in the cookies
make buttercream frosting instead of buying it in the can
pulse food processor or blender so the crushed peppermints are less fine

1 chocolate cake mix
1/2 c shortening
2 eggs
mix. bake at 350* for 8 minutes

frosting recipe here + add 1-2 teaspoons mint extract to taste

roll in crushed peppermint
these are great for neighbors, the office, or just to have at home for the holidays.
