Mint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies Recipe

mmm…St Patricks Day yumminess.

Or any day yumminess, I show no favoritism to chocolate.

There are 3  good things about this cookie.

1. It’s loaded with icing.

2. It’s chocolate.

3. It travels well.

Here’s what you need..



6 Tablespoons butter

1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar

2 Tablespoons water (but I would recommend a bit more)

12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt



2-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

1/4 cup butter-softened

3 tablespoons milk (I used a little more)

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (you could add more if you LOVE peppermint)

3 drops green food coloring

dash of salt

1.  Combine butter, brown sugar, water and chips over low heat until melted. Stir often. I burn chocolate nearly every time I make it. Literally. Ask my husband.  So don’t be like me and walk away to do 6 other things while the chocolate is melting.

2. Let it cool for a bit.

3. Beat in egg and vanilla.

4. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to chocolate mixture.

5. Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet.  I got a little carried away (ie-completely over this project) and made my last batch GIGANTIC. Like sugar-comma size. It’s not pretty, don’t do it. Make them small and flatten them out a little, which I also didn’t do.

6. Make at 350 about 11-12 minutes.

7. Remove to rack to cool.  This cookie looks like a desert doesn’t it? All cracked up, but that’s right, and the inside is still nice and soft. :)

Now make the icing. yum.

8. Combine all ingredients for icing and blend well.

8. Pipe or spread on cookies.

9. EAT.

    Hello there, I just started a good internet site, unfortunately I can’t seem to gain a great many readers. I noticed that you’ve got a bit of commentary. Are you able to give me some reomdmencation regarding how to obtain more subscribers as well as to attract remarks? Thanks
