Instructions

  1. COOKIES: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Combine cake mix, eggs and oil in a bowl.  The dough will be thick.  Make golfball sized dough balls, place on cookie sheets and bake for 7-10 minutes, don't over-bake! Let cool.

  2. MARSHMALLOW FROSTING: Beat butter, salt, marshmallow creme, vanilla and 2 cups powdered sugar together. Continue to add more powdered sugar to thicken and add green food dye if desired.  If it becomes too thick add 2 tablespoons milk! Frost cooled cookies.
