Heavenly.....another great recipe from Kittencal!! Glad they're going out the door and not staying in my kitchen....if they make it to this evening. :) I made according to the recipe except for making half the chips white peppermint, adding a 1/2 tsp of coffee powder, and omitting the nuts since they were for a kid's party. I baked them on parchment paper, took them out of oven as soon as the tops looked "dry" (about 6-7 minutes). then cooled until cookies flattened/set before removing from pan. For servings, I doubled the recipe and used a small (tablespoon of batter) cookie scoop; it made 8.5 dozen, 2.5 inch round cookies.

This is excellent for the "hamburger cupcakes". Before making these I had to make a sheet of brownies and use a cookie cutter to make the "meat" part of the cupcake and it looks more like a hamburger patty. Everyone of the people who ate them wanted the recipe for the brownie cookies.
