Choco-Mint Snappers

Recipe by Lisaural

This has always been my all-time favorite Christmas cookie. They are most enjoyable when crisp!

These had a great texture, but the mint taste didn't come through as much as I'd hoped. I will make these again with plain chocolate, since I loved the crispiness of the cookie. Thank you so much for a new yummy cookie!
