I loved these cookies! They are a light chocolate butter cookie on their own and yummy that way but with the mint-sooo good and reminded me of Nabisco's Mystic Mint Cookies. I ended up just drizzling the chocolate over to save time. I used a medium star and small heart cutters and got 44 stars and 35 hearts plus a few that I just molded with my hands with the last bits of dough. I didn't think the dough would hold together at first but just pressed into a ball about 1/3 at a time bofore rolling out and it worked fine. I baked at 350 degrees for about 9 minutes and was able to place the cookies close together on the sheets since they don't spread. Thank you VeggieHippie for this recipe and I will make these again!
