Mint Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Chocolate crinkle cookies are a common staple among families’ holiday baking traditions. This year though, I wanted to put a little spin on it. I thought adding in chopped Andes Mints would be a good addition. Chocolate crinkle cookies are traditionally a chewy, fudgey texture, so I knew I needed to make mine trying to keep true to the typical chocolate crinkle cookie.

Chocolate crinkle cookies are a drop cookie that has been rolled in powdered sugar. The texture contrast of the powdered sugar with the fudgey cookie is definitely pleasant to the taste buds.
