Dark Chocolate Sweet Mint Cookies.jpg

Chocolate and mint -- one of my very favorite dessert combos. I know it's not for everyone, but I think it's brilliant!   When I came across the chocolate sandwich cookie recipe in The Violet Bakery Cookbook, I immediately knew that I wanted to do my own spin on it and add a mint buttercream filling instead of the suggested salted caramel (which would also be delicious, don't get me wrong)!  These are essentially homemade oreos and make a great dessert for any St. Patrick's Day party or for anytime you're craving chocolate and mint in cookie form.  This recipe does require some patience as the dough needs to chill for a couple of hours, but don't fret, the result is worth it.
