MMMMMmmmmm Chocolate and mint mixed. Another favorite...this could be why the holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Years is my favorite time of year... All the goodies that we all make!

***For a beginner, you may find this cookie to be VERY challenging***

Please keep in mind that this recipe is extremely versatile. You can add the food coloring of your choice or don't add the chocolate. You can make pinwheels or you can make candy canes from this very same recipe. The possibilities are endless!
