Green Eyed Monster Cookies

Green Eyed Monster Cookies 

1 box of vanilla cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
green food dye...

Mix till blended add food dye. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. I use a melon ball sized scoop and bake them on parchment paper. Bake 7 to 9 minutes. Cool

Pipe a round portion of your favorite frosting on the top and then a little black frosting (I made mine) but you can buy tubes of the black at the store and I recommend that if you don't have black dye at home.
