Chocolate Mint Stuffed Cookies I The Well Floured Kitchen

So how’s your holiday shopping going?  Every year I say I will be done way ahead of time and then relax and enjoy.  Hah!  Hasn’t happened yet.  I haven’t even really baked much, save our annual gingerbread house and some rugelach.

And now these chocolate mint stuffed cookies.  The peppermint patties are certainly seasonal for Christmas, and they make a delicious gift.  In fact, people can become so addicted that they look for this same gift year after year..you know who you are.

If you bite (or cut) into them while they are still warm, the patty will be all warm and melty.
