Reviews for Snow-Topped Chocolate Mint Cookies
"My daughter's favorite! No way did it make dozen though. Mint chips were very hard to find, but clearly a must for this recipe. Stock up when you find them!"
"Easy, makes alot."
"I like them without the extra chips also-nice and chewy!"
"This recipe was easy and cookies provide great mint flavor. I think I messed up the recipe somewhere because the dough was too soft to roll in my hands after 2 hours. I also might not add the second batch of mint chips (just use the melted chips) next time. Other than my mistakes the cookies came out soft and had a great combination of mint and chocolate."
"Where do you put the mint?"
