Chocolate Mint Cookies

Looking for a good winter cookie?  These Chocolate Mint Cookies are it!

I’m sure some of you have seen or used this recipe before.  I tried a little twist on it this week.  I had a box of See’s Milk Chocolate Peppermints, so I decided to put those on half of the cookies and Andes mints on the other half (Andes is what the recipe calls for).

I think the Andes mints work better with the recipe because they’re smaller and you can “swirl” them into the cookie when they’re hot.  However, the See’s peppermints LOOK better.  I mean, seriously, is that not a cute cookie?  So if you’re looking to make a handsome cookie, the See’s peppermints are a good way to go.

No matter how you make them…YUM!

  1. One thing I miss about the west is the access to See’s! I always buy some when I’m visiting “out there”. The recipe looks good! I’ll be trying it in ’09.

  2. Just found you via twitter and am so thrilled to join your site. I’m transitioning to a more domesticated lifestyle (from one of a traveling military mom) and could really use some great ideas to jump start my dinner rotations.

    i look forward to sharing our dinner plans

  3. Wow those look great – any excuse to go to See’s and Im there!!
