Frosted fudge cookies speckled with both dark chocolate and mint chips. Soft, chubby bites that taste like candy through and through.
The mint is so strong they can’t be stored in the same container with other cookies or everything will smell and taste magically of mint.
Growing up we always had those little foil wrapped Andes mints in our house for Christmas time. That was when I first fell in love with naturally sweet, tingly peppermint.
Tastes changed and the Andes mint tradition fell by the way side only to be filled by another. Like Hickory Farms melt away mints in pastel colors. They totally rock. The current object of my affections is peppermint bark. Swoon.
Of all the Christmas cookies I’ve made these are the surprise winners. Everyone reaches for a second and third even though the cookie tray is seemingly filled with much more interesting choices.
The sleeper hit of the cookie season.
