"This is a great recipe to have the kids help put together! Recipe works equally beautiful with mint swirled chocolate kiss. Looks great on a Holiday cookie platter. Rolling the cookie in powdered sugar gives these cake mix cookies a very refined look! As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home I enjoy working with classic recipes that put a new twist on old favorites!"

"These cookies obviously remain soft and moist, easy to make and enjoyed by everyone. You can serve them chilled, warmed and even frozen depending on the topper you use."
