Contest-Winning Chocolate Mint Cookies Recipe

My dad sandwiches mint patties between two tender chocolate cookies to create these chewy treats. The blend of chocolate and mint is a big hit at our house. Best of all, these cookies are easy and fun to make. -Christina Burbage, Spartanburg, South Carolina
