  • Let stand for 20 minutes, and then shape into very small 1/2 inch balls. Place these balls on a cookie sheet 2 inches a part, and smash down flat. You will need to spray a large spoon with Pam to make them flat.
  • Bake for about 8 minutes. Let cool until they reach room temperature.
  • Heat chocolate chips in either the microwave, or in a double boiler. When completely melted add a couple drops of the mint flavoring. Be carefull not to add too much, it is a powerfull flavoring.
  • You can either spread the melted chocolate on the cookies, or you can dip the cookies into the chocolate.
