A soft, brownie-like cookie is the base for these Gluten Free Chocolate Mint Cookies. Topped with a mint buttercream and drizzled with chocolate ganache, these cookies will have them coming back for more.
When a recipe starts off with 2 cups of chocolate chips – you know you’re in for something special. A rich, fudge-y chocolate cookie is the result, and the perfect base for the mint buttercream and chocolate ganache.
St. Patrick’s Day is coming up next week, and during this time of year my Facebook and Pinterest feeds are filled with corned beef & cabbage, and all things chocolate & mint. Whether it’s these Paleo Double Chocolate Mint Cookies, or this gluten free Mint Chocolate Brownie Decadence, the flavour combination has been calling out to me. After taking a quick browse through my recipes, I realized that I have very few recipes that highlight the chocolate/mint flavour.
My family has always been less than enthusiastic about chocolate and mint being combined, but these gluten free Chocolate Mint Cookies have definitely changed their minds! It didn’t take more than a few days for all the cookies to be gone, with the kids asking for more. The soft cookies, topped with a crusting mint buttercream, and a soft layer of chocolate, were enough to convert the whole family.
I know I’ll definitely be making them again, and maybe changing up the flavours along the way. Maybe a strawberry buttercream in place of the mint would be nice, or even a caramel. Think of the possibilities!
