There’s something enduringly appealing about the chocolate mint connection. It’s a flavour combo that never fails to impress. These are decadent fudge cookies, with crackly tops and a texture midway between cookie and brownie (think crisp edges and fudgy insides - like a truffle cookie). Warm, out of the oven, they are anointed with a York ® Peppermint Patty or After Eight ® Mint.
For Chocolate Topping, melt the milk chocolate chips and keep warm.
In a mixer bowl, fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Blend in egg, vanilla and mint extracts and blend in the melted chocolate. Fold in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Form dough into walnut sized balls and place, evenly spaced, on baking sheet.
Remove from the oven and immediately place an After Eight Mint (or peppermint patty) on top of each cookie and press gently. In a few minutes, gently smear melting mint to ice top of cookie.
Chill slightly or leave to set at room temperature.
