You guys all know how much I love COOKIES, right? And you probably have guessed by now just how much I love CHOCOLATE too. Put the two together and you have one happy blogger. 😉
I’ll pretty much take any excuse I can get to make some yummy cookies… especially if they have chocolate. What if I told you this next recipe has DOUBLE the chocolate? Pretty sweet, right? I’m calling this next recipe: Double Chocolate Mint Cookies. It has a chocolate base and has White Chocolate Chips and Chopped Chocolate Mints too (I guess technically that makes it triple?!)
I’m happy to report that they turned out FABULOUS!! They were chocolate-y and minty and oh-so soft (definitely my kind of cookie!)
I’ll definitely be adding this one in on the cookie rotation. 🙂
