Reviews for Chocolate-Mint Creme Cookies
"Delicious! Make a great Christmas cookie. If you like chocolate mint, these are a must :)"
"The cookies were really good. I think we made them a little too big...keep in mind that each "cookie" is really 2 cookies. It would be fun to dye the filling green, especially around Christmas."
