These Mint Chocolate Cookie Cups are little bites of heaven. A soft, chocolate cookie with an Andes mint stuffed in the middle is topped with mint buttercream and a chocolate drizzle. They were devoured by all.
Have you ever had one of those days where you went out on the lake and had a lovely, relaxing day. You ate good food, enjoyed good company, got a little sun kissed, went tubing for the first time in a year since you can’t ski or wakeboard, then you totally crash that night, completely exhausted but grateful for the fun day you had, then you dream about sunscreen and afternoon naps only to wake up in the morning and not be able to move your arms because you are so sore from said tubing?
Yea, yesterday was that morning. Oh. my. goodness. My arms and chest. Putting on clothing was a challenge.
But it was totally worth it. I can’t ski or wakeboard, like I said. I’ve tried. Doesn’t work. And I have a fear of skiing since an accident when I was 6 and my dad tried to ski while holding me. It didn’t end well. Now, me + skiing = scary accident.
So tubing is my thing. And I don’t go down easy.
The thing with tubing is when your husband (or friend’s husband) is pulling you, it’s all about trying to throw you off. And I will not be thrown. Bring it.
I held on through some crazy turns and waves, including one that had the tube turned up in the air at a 90 degree angle while airborne. And I landed it. Oh yea!
But now I’m paying the price. And then I had to play tennis. Rough.
Oh well. My arms could use some toning. I’d rather tube than lift weights anyways.
And since I had to have burned like 5,000 calories, I can’t totally eat more of these mint chocolate cookie cups, right? Right!
It’s a good thing, because they are totally irresistible. I needed more of them. I didn’t get to share them with everyone that I wanted to because they just totally disappeared!
Our small group devoured them. It was a good thing I left a few behind for the hubs. But then the next day I got home from work and those were devoured too. I barely got any! I couldn’t believe it.
You should probably double the batch.
