  • 2 bars (3.5 ounce each) dark chocolate mint bars, chopped
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  2. Refrigerate one hour.
  3. Shape into ball (large tablespoons), and roll in powdered sugar, covering completely.
  4. Drop on parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on pan 10 minutes before removing to wire rack.


  • If you can't find dark chocolate mint bars, use 8 oz dark chocolate chips with ½ tsp peppermint extract. Or swap out for Andes Mints.
