Chocolate mint cookies. Super chocolate, chocolate chip, mint cookies. These cookies are very chocolatey so they are not for the faint of heart. These are dense little gems!
I got the idea while I was walking through Trader Joe’s. I buy their yummy dark chocolate-covered mints. They are really good; sort of like Junior Mints but creamier, bigger, and well, yummier. So, I was thinking – wouldn’t these be super yummy in a cookie? And not just in a regular cookie, BUT a chocolate cookie.
BING! A light bulb went on over my head, nearly blinding all the other shoppers in my vicinity.
I switched off the bulb, blinked the tears out of my eyes and put the chocolate mints in my basket. I also threw in an avocado. Did you know that you can reduce the ‘bad’ fat in baked goods by replacing half the butter with an avocado?
Well, you can and I did.
So on the the recipe!
