Mint & Chip Sandwich Cookies

Now that March has arrived, I start thinking about green food for St. Patrick’s Day.  Today, I whipped up some super easy cookies for you … Mint & Chip Sandwich Cookies!

Mint & chip sandwich cookies

When I think of green dessert, the first flavor that comes to mind … is mint.

What goes with mint … chocolate of course!

I had leftover icing/frosting in the fridge … it just made sense to use it up!  Since we had Mexican for dinner … mint with chocolate was a nice way to end the meal!

These cookies are so simple to assemble … I almost felt guilty when I told the family that I “made dessert” 😉  (Please note that I said almost felt guilty)

MINT & CHIP SANDWICH COOKIES

  • 1-1/2 cups white frosting
  • Peppermint oil or peppermint extract (to taste)
  • Leaf green gel paste food coloring
  • 20 – 24 Chocolate wafer cookies (such as Nabisco Famous)
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup melted chocolate or candy melts
  • edible shamrock decorations
  • wax paper or parchment lined tray
  1. Flavor the icing with peppermint oil … the oil is very strong, start with a few drops and taste before adding more!
  2. Color the icing … start with a drop or two.
  3. Add chocolate chips to the icing and stir to combine.
  4. Take a chocolate wafer cookie … add a scoop of the icing mixture … place another wafer cookie on top … gently press down.  Chill for a few minutes.
  5. Dip 1/2 of the cookie in melted chocolate and lay on prepared tray … lay shamrock decoration on melted chocolate.  Chill for a few minutes and serve.
  6. Store cookies in an air tight container in the fridge.  Makes 10 to 12 sandwich cookies.

I enjoy your comments  🙂
