When it comes to cookies, I have to admit I like the dough more than the cookies. My all time favorite is chocolate chip. I know it’s hard to believe with all the options out there I chose a classic, but I can’t help what I like.
In my house there are only two perfect matches for chocolate. One of course is peanut butter (chocolate’s quintessential match made in heaven) the second of course is mint. Chad is bonkers over peppermint or crème de menthe and when you mix them with chocolate he is over the moon!
This spring we enjoyed several mint chocolate chip creations and we just could not get enough.
Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookie Trifle is made with layer after layer of minty chocolaty goodness. It is the perfect dessert for the chocolate mint lover!
Simple 5 Minute Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip is a fun party dessert. Serve with cookies, crackers, pretzels or chips. Your guests are certain to gather around this dessert bowl. If you like cookie dough, you will be bonkers over this dangerously delish treat!!!
This cookie dough bar is eggless and tastes just like the real thing. It has a lovely sugary texture and the flavor will win over even the pickiest eater. Just ask my 3 year old. It’s chocolate and mint in cookie dough, covered in chocolate. You really can’t go wrong.
This easy dessert comes together in 15 minutes, then simply chill and serve.
With love from our Simple Kitchen to yours!
