(you can see a mint chip peeking out from under the chocolate…)
We don’t really celebrate in our household…but cookies are always a plus!
These were extremely well-received by all who had a taste. No one would know how simple they are (and no added fat or flour, if you don’t count the chocolate chips 🙂 ). Very sweet, fudgy, and rich, with a crackly, shiny top and cool minty taste.

P.S.: Please excuse the sporadic blogging; I’ve been eating and taking photos but life (namely finals) always gets in the way of uploading. It’s been a rough first semester, but one filled with memories for sure.
