Chocolate Mint Dreams by Taste of Home

Chocolate Mint DreamsOur new favorite to Christmastime cookie (by Taste of Home). It’s a sandy chocolate cookie, with a minty icing and a drizzle of chocolate. What else can I say?

Chocolate Mint Dreams

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

ICING:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 to 2 drops green food coloring

DRIZZLE:

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in cooled chocolate and extract. Gradually add flour and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. (Dough will be soft.)
  • Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until firm. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
