Swirly Mint and Chocolate Cookies

This was an impulse bake.  You know, when you see a recipe online and think 'I'm going to do that..NOW!'   


At first I was a little disturbed by the green food colouring.  I couldn't decide if it was Kermit-in-a-blender troubling or a Help-me-I-am-melting Wicked Witch of the West moment.  Regardless, the green food colouring is part of this cookie's charm so in it went. 


I love chocolate covered mints so recipe is right up my street, but I must say I thought the mint flavour was a bit subtle.  Next time I'll put in a bit more peppermint extract to really punch up the after dinner mint experience.  I may even pump up the green a bit! Look out Kermit.

  2. These look very pretty and you can't beat chocolate and mint together.
