Chocolate and mint is one of my favorite cookie combinations! A few months ago I discovered Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Honey Mints. As soon as I tasted one, I knew they would be perfect in a Christmas cookie. If you’ve never tried them you must! They are divine and have only 3 ingredients – chocolate, honey, and mint.
If you don’t live by Trader Joe’s… I’m sorry. I didn’t live by one for a few years – dark days, I tell you. But you can still make these cookies! Just use any peppermint patty you like. You can also make some of my homemade, refined-sugar-free, peppermint patties.
These cookies are totally delicious. They are crispy on the outside and almost brownie-like on the inside. The mint patty melts into the top layer, so you get some of it’s yummy, gooiness in every bite. These are the perfect Christmas cookie in my book. They are also grain and refined-sugar-free!
This picture says it all! Soft and chocolatey on the inside with the delicious melted mint. I wish I had some more right now!Read More...
