  • ‘Tis the season for stuffing things – bellies and cookies! Over the weekend Adalyn and I made chocolate mint stuffed cookies and they turned out so good!

    They’re the winter version of mint chocolate chip ice cream – the girls’ favorite. A chewy, chocolatey brownie flavor with a hint of mint, the perfect “crunch.”

    Growing up, my mom always kept Andes Mints in the butter compartment of the refrigerator for a quick fix. I loved how they were just a little something to cure a sweet tooth. When halved, they add just the right amount of flavor and texture to my favorite chocolate cookies.

    These chocolate mint stuffed cookies couldn’t be easier to make – just mix the dough, refrigerate 30 minutes, scoop or roll a ball dough, insert an Andes Mint square and cover with dough before baking. I garnished with a little extra just after I pulled them out of the over for added color.
