Chocolate Mint Creams

Chocolate Mint Creams


I found this recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens Book. "Cookies For Christmas" These taste like little mint frosted brownies. I make them every year at Christmas. It's the only time I can find the mints. They have always been a big hit with company but nobody wants to make them because they look to hard. They are surprisingly easy and very tasty. The first ones gone on a cookie tray. I use Allan Misty mints but you can use any pastel mints. The recipe program wouldn't let me add them to the ingredient list.
