Choco-Mint dipped cookies
1 1/2 cup mint-chocolate chips
1 1/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter -- softened
1/2 cup brown sugar -- firmly packed
1/4 cup sugar -- granulated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Melt 3/4 cup of the mint-chocolate chips in a the microwave , stir until smooth. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, sugar, and vanilla extract; beat until creamy.
Add melted chips and egg; beat well. Gradually blend in the flour mixture. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup of mint-chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375Fdegrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
Allow to stand 2 to 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely on wire racks.
After they are done baking, I used chocolate candy wafers and melted them in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
When the chocolate is melted, dip half of the cookie into the chocolate and cover the area well. dont forget to double dip. Then right after when the chocolate is still wet sprinkle colorful sprinkles to decorate. use whatever candy you like.
My daughter had lots of fun with these cookies. A really fun recipe to do with the kids.
I love white Chocolate....my weakness. the mix of the white chocolate and the Mint is so good. especially when warm. I think I sent half the batch to work with my husband so I wouldnt eat them. Crazy good cookie!!!
