I know, I know. It’s the first week of January. The holidays are over and you’re cookied out. But we haven’t had the full 12 days of Christmas so the holidays aren’t really over yet, are they? Plus, it’s not too late to celebrate the new year! Because I still have two more cookie recipes to share with you!
The first are these chocolate mint cookies that are really fast to throw together and fun to make. It starts off ordinarily enough. Cook up some simple but tasty chocolate cookies and you may think you’re done there, but no! This is where the fun begins!
Place an Andes mint on top of each cookie immediately after you’ve taken them out of the oven and watch the mints slowly soften into the cookies. And then my favorite part: spread the melting chocolatey minty goodness all over the cookie like it’s frosting. Because it is. Proverbially and literally, the frosting on the cookie makes this one tasty treat.
Happy New Year! I hope you’re celebrating with good food!
