These are the cookies I made my secret sister. I can post them here because I don't think we have ever met so I am pretty sure she doesn't read this and if she does, I guess the secret is out! Her favorite candy is...
...Andes Mints. I never really thought about them as candy. I guess if it isn't in the impulse buy section starting me in the face as I check out I don't really think about it. I was searching online recipes with andes mints and came across this Chocolate Mint Cookies I on AllRecipes.com
I do love mint and chocolate together. Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream is the ice cream I am most likely to get when I go out for ice cream. But as far as chocolate goes I think chocolate and caramel, chocolate and marshmallow, and chocolate and peanut butter are tied for first and then chocolate and mint is second. And when I say chocolate, I mean dark chocolate. And fruity chocolate (not fruit dipped in chocolate) is at the very bottom of the list. I think I would eat salad for dessert before I would eat fruity chocolate. Wow that took me to a weird place, back to these cookies. Make these. They taste like winter and the holidays.
PB was too excited about cookies and crashed my photoshoot :)
