12 Days of Christmas Cookies - Day #12 - Chocolate Butterscotch Crinkles

Chocolate Butterscotch Crinkles 

Merry Christmas Eve!!!  I feel like Christmas came so fast this year, and I will be super sad when it is over!  But before that happens, there is lots of celebrating to do!  Tonight, we will be spending Christmas Eve going to the Children's mass at our church and having dinner at my parents house!  Tomorrow morning, I will be having both families over for present opening and my annual Waffle Breakfast!  Then, we will head to John's family for Christmas Day dinner!  It will be a busy 2 days, and I am loving it!

I spent the whole morning in my kitchen - my happy place!  And now I can share with you my final Christmas Cookie recipe!  Chocolate Butterscotch Crinkles!  Since it is Christmas Eve, I am giving you an easy cake mix cookie recipe that you can whip up in no time!
