Cocoa Mint Hideaways

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by jenshie

I got this out of a holiday cookie collection. I thought that they sounded good but I had no idea how good until they were done. The combination of chewy chocolate cookies and mint is hard to beat!

YUM! My favorite candies are York Pepperming Patties, so my friend bought me a box from Sam's Club containing something like, oh I donno...50,000,000. I didn't want to eat them ALL really fast all by myself (and I very easily could), so I put them into cookies so that my family could enjoy them with me. They were fabulous...chewy and soft and minty. Thanks so much, Jenshie!!!
