Dark Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies

dark chocolate mint cookies
I have been wanting to make chocolate crinkle cookies for a long time now. But I knew I wanted to make them from scratch. And I knew I wanted them to be decadent.
So I used Green and Blacks Dark Chocolate Mint bars chopped up inside each cookie.

Yeah, wow.
The richness of using GOOD chocolate in these cookies was a perfect decision. I loved eating these warm out of the oven, they taste like a rich gooey brownie!

    Chocolate + mint HAS to be one of my FAVE combos! (Dare I say more so than chocolate + pb!) And I douse almost everything I can in powdered sugar, so these cookies look perfect for me :)

    While they are good, no one got a mint flavor from them. Maybe next time some peppermint extract.
