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!
