December 2017

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Dermody Office! Our favorite trouble maker, Joey, has made his way back from the North Pole to make sure our patients are brushing and flossing regularly. Try and spot him when you attend your dental appointment this month.

Melting Snowman Cookies

Recipe of the Month


  • 1 box Devil's food cake mix
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1 package candiquik white candy coating, or other white melting chocolate
  • 10 miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, cut in half
  • mini chocolate chips
  • orange jimmies


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, butter, eggs, flour, and extract. Use a cookie scoop to drop evenly sized potions of dough onto a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Once the cookies are cool, melt candiquik or white chocolate. Drizzle a spoonful over each cookie to form the melted snow. Add a peanut butter cup half for the hat, and decorate the faces with chocolate chips and sprinkles.
