These double chocolate cookies are flavored with mint and rolled in powdered sugar. The result is a chocolate mint dessert that resembles a mountain top of snow.
Christmas Cookies are the best. Snowballs, gingerbread, thumbprints — every family has their favorites. And it is so fun to be able to serve an assortment come holiday time! One of the tricks to having a great stash is to bake a few weeks ahead of time and package them carefully for the freezer. Then pull them out an hour before you want to serve them. Delish! (Plus, your guests will be amazed that you have so many different kinds at one time.)

Update: I’ve made these cookies even more amazing with the addition of mint-flavored Hershey kisses. Grab the recipe for Chocolate Minty Melts  and make them both. See which you prefer and report back.
Summary: I found the recipe for these cookies in the 2002 edition of Christmas Cookies, a special interest publication of Better Homes and Gardens. They are absolutely delicious! I’ve made one modification regarding the form of the chocolate. If you like chocolate and mint, you will want to make a double batch.
