 Mint in the Middle Cookies


Mint in the Middle cookies remind me of a Girl Scout thin mint colliding with a York peppermint patty. This is my favorite cookie. They are a little work but it is WELL worth it, they are not complicating though. These are a perfect cookie to make and show off your baking skills! If you can make chocolate chip cookies you can make these!
Mint in the Middle Cookies

Ingredients:

Cookie Layer
3 cups flour
2/3 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp mint extract
2 tablespoons milk

Mint Layer
4 cups powder sugar
6 tablespoons corn syrup
6 tablespoons melted butter
3-4 tsp peppermint extract

Chocolate Layer
½ pound chocolate bark, chopped
1 package semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Starting with the cookie layer, in a bowl sift together the flour, baking cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. In a separate bowl beat together butter and sugar. Next add the egg, mint extract, and milk. Slowly add small amounts of the flour mixture, until it’s all combined.
Roll dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll it to about ¼ inch or even thinner. Use a small round cookie cutter, and cut cookies. Bake (these barely spread) for 8-10 minutes. Let cool and move on to the mint layer.

Place about a teaspoonful of chocolate on top of the mint layer and spread in a circular motion over the sides.
