Contest-Winning Chocolate Mint Wafers Recipe

I created these melt-in-your-mouth thin mints for a cookie exchange, and everyone raved about them. They're often requested by my family and have become one of my daughter's favorites. To switch up the flavor, try using different extracts instead of peppermint. -Michelle Kester, Cleveland, Ohio
