I got these last year from christmas-cookies.com , I needed something different for a tray I was preparing. I love these! Nice light mint flavor with the chocolate. When doing them for Christmas, I tinted the sugar red and green for rolling :) **cooking time is PER tray**

Wonderful cookies! Chocolate with a zip of mint, a great combo! I easily halved the batch and will make them again trying different extracts like coconut or almond! I used sparkling sugar for dipping in place of the granulated. Thanks for a great recipe Marlene! :)
