Delicious Mint Chocolate Cookies

4 years ago

Hi everyone!
I tried this recipe first out last year and really liked it. First of all, they are SUPER ADORABLE. The chocolate drizzle on top is just amazing. They are tiny and very yummy! If you don`t like chocolate and mint together, then I don`t suggest it, but if you do....

Here is the recipe:

Chocolate-Mint Cookies
BAKE: 8 min per sheet | YIELD: About 3 dozen cookies

1 cup sugar
½ cup butter or margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
Peppermint Frosting (below)
¼ cup butter or margarine
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 package (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
Crushed hard peppermint candies, if desired

Heat oven to 375. Beat sugar, ½ cup butter, the vanilla, egg and unsweetened chocolate in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour and salt.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten cookies with greased bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Bake until set, about 8 minutes. Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool cookies completely.

Spread Peppermint Frosting over each cookie to within ¼ inch of edge. Melt ¼ cup butter, the corn syrup and chocolate chips over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Spoon or drizzle mixture over each cookie; sprinkle with crushed candies.

Peppermint Frosting
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
¼ cup butter or margarine, softened
3 tablespoons milk
½ teaspoon peppermint extract

Mix all ingredients until smooth and of spreading consistency.

Cookie Tips
To easily crush peppermint candies, place in resealable plastic freezer bag. Seal bag and pound with rolling pin or meat mallet to crush.

Make It Your Way
If you want to try another flavour combination, we suggest Chocolate-Orange Cookies. To make these, substitute orange extract for the peppermint extract in the frosting. If you would like, crush orange-flavoured hard candies to sprinkle on top of the cookies in place of the peppermint candies. This orange variation would make a fun Halloween treat.
