These cookies have been on the back-burner for a while now. I really wanted to make them because I am a sucker for chewy chocolate things. And mint is fabulous, as long as it’s not peppermint because that is too close to toothpaste for me. So these cookies are perfect! But I will admit, the first bite I took immediately hit me like it’s a Christmas cookie & I should have waited longer to make it. Now I kind of want Christmas to come. Okay, not really, but it would be perfect for Christmas, so hold on to this one for neighbor gifts!
