Double Chocolate Cookies & Mint Chocolate Variation

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

Adapted from Taste of Home. I made these recently when I had a chocolate craving that would not go away. They definitely took care of that! I made the Mint Chocolate variation after I found a bag of Andes Mint Chocolate Baking Pieces at my grocery store that they had not previously carried. They were a nice treat for my 2 Mint Chocolate fans......

These are too good!! I pressed the dough into mini muffin pans and baked for 8 minutes. It made 4 dozen "two-bite brownie" style cookies. I baked one pan and am freezing the other three for future reference. I'm going to have to revisit this recipe if I can find the mints. Thanks for posting this - I came home from work with such an urge for something chocolate and these are perfect!!
