Cookies: Andes Mint Cookies

This is a recipe I really loved from last year's cookie exchange.  My friend Melissa brought these, and I was really intrugued when I saw it only required four ingredients, and they really were pretty with the glossy chocolate tops. Yes, mint is a great Christmas recipe, but for some reason I've always associated it with Saint Patrick's Day as well, so...a fun cookie to celebrate Saint Patrick.
Andes Mint Cookie Recipe
Ingredients:  1 Devil's food cake mix, 1/2 c. oil, 2 eggs, 1 pkg Andes Mints
Instructions:  Mix cake mix, oil and eggs together.  Drop spoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 6-9 minutes. 
Take the sheet out of the oven and while the cookies are still very hot, place a mint on top of each cookie.  In about 5 minutes, the mint will be melted.  Take a spoon and smooth out each mint like frosting.
