Yummy St. Patrick's Day Devils Food Cookies

It's been a weekend of St. Patrick's Day preparation and festivities, so I wanted to share these yummy cookies I baked last night. They aren't the most pretty cookies, but they taste great and they were super easy to make.
Thanks to my friend Amy for the great recipe!

• 1 box devil's food cake mix
• 1/3 cup butter
• 1/3 cup water
• 1 egg
• peanut butter chips
• 1 container of frosting
• green and yellow food coloring

Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine cake mix, butter, water, egg, and peanut butter chips in a large bowl.

Mix well until a smooth dough forms.

Lightly grease cooking sheets with cooking spray.
Then shape dough into 1-inch balls and place on the cookie sheet.
Warning: this is very messy and sticky!

Lightly spray a spoon with cooking spray and press gently on each cookie to flatten it.

Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool completely before starting the frosting.

To create the green frosting, I used a container of vanilla frosting and some food coloring. These cookies would also be great with chocolate frosting, but then they wouldn't be green : )

Pour frosting into a bigger bowl. Add 5 drops of green and one drop of yellow food coloring to the frosting. Mix well until the color is uniform throughout.

After the cookies have cooled, spread frosting on each cookie. These would be really cute with green sprinkles, so maybe next time I'll add those too.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
