Mint Chocolate Cookie Cups

Raven Higheagle


These Mint Chocolate Cookie Cups are little bites of heaven. A soft, chocolate cookie with an Andes mint stuffed in the middle is topped with mint buttercream and a chocolate drizzle. They were devoured by all.

It’s a good thing, because they are totally irresistible. I needed more of them. I didn’t get to share them with everyone that I wanted to because they just totally disappeared!

Our small group devoured them. It was a good thing I left a few behind for the hubs. I barely got any! I couldn’t believe it.

You should probably double the batch.
