Chocolate Mint Cookies I
If I could give this 4.5 stars I would. The cookies come out incredibly well, moist and chewy, just like a brownie, but the "frosting" was the part I wasn't super thrilled with. I used two different types of mints, to see which worked best, and the Andes were better. But I still think maybe I would like some melted chocolate with peppermint extract instead of an actual mint.
I also used a double boiler instead of melting the butter, sugar, water and chocolate directly into a pan. I thought it would help shield the chocolate a little better and prevent it from burning. Warning though, this batter is very very thick, and it was difficult for my hand mixer to get through it.
Overall though, these are a huge hit, and I will be making them again.
