In the kitchen with juliyya: Chocolate Mint Chews

Assembly and preparation

A couple of my neighborhood girlies stopped by yesterday with a handmade Christmas card and hand-decorated snowman cookie for me. We decided, together with their mother, that we’d bake a quick dozen of a cookie which I’d wanted to demo in photos for some young family members now living in Minnesota, and thus not here for the tin of freshly-made goodies usually provided by me for Christmas. (Their father is one of my nephews and this is his favorite of those goodies.)

The ingredients are all assembled in one spot. The mixing by hand is done. Then the dough is divided into quarters, each of which is divided into three and dropped onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment.

Different dough, same process. Divide dough into 4 parts, then each part to 3.

A couple minutes before the cookies are done baking, a Hershey’s Mint Truffle Kiss is placed carefully on top. They go back into the oven for two minutes, then out to cool and set up for a couple minutes before spreading the melty goodness on top. They can be set in a cool room for the topping to harden or eaten while warm and gooey.
