I got this recipe from an issue of Taste of Home I got long ago. These are the perfect Christmas cookies with the peppermint patties!
1 package Devil's food cake mix
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 T. water
2 T. confectioners sugar
2 packages (5 oz each) chocolate covered thin mints (like thin peppermint patties)
Combine cake mix, butter and water. Add eggs, mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls, roll in confectioners sugar. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Immediately press thin mint into the center of each cookie. Cool 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
