Thin Mint Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
2 cups all purpose flour
32 thin chocolate mint cookies

Beat together butter and sugar, in a large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, until creamy - about 1 minute.  Beat in melted chocolate, eggs, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined - about 2 minutes.  Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in cocoa powder and flour until just combined.  Chill dough in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  

Spray your hands with cooking spray.  Take a heaping tablespoon of dough and flatten into the palm of your hand; place a mint cookie on top, and wrap dough around cookie.  Repeat process with remaining cookies.  Place on cookie sheets, spacing about an inch apart.  Bake 10-12 minutes, or until set, and slightly crisp.  Cool 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.

Makes 32 cookies

  3. My youngest told me last night she wanted peppermint cookies so I might make these tomorrow. I love the idea of stuffed cookies and I haven't done any yet so this would be fun to try....plus I think she could help. Great recipe.

    I liked Shabby Apple on FB and I also love their Hollywood Hills lace dress...

  10. I like them on facebook! My favorite item is easy - it's their white tulle "tinsel town skirt", that is far too impractical to actually buy, but super gorgeous.

  30. A candy inside a cookie inside a cookie. That is just over the top (in the best way possible).

    I like the Aintree and Bon Voyage dresses and the Tinseltown skirt. So hard to choose one. I spend a lot of time on that site and never buy anything because I just can't make up my mind!

  31. Adorable apron! (I am too late for the giveaway, I know.) I have always wanted a designer apron like that. Chocolate and mint is the perfect combination to me. If I make one more cookie this season, it will be these. God knows I don't need another one, but these look awesome. :)
