So it’s fair to say I’m on a little bit of a chocolate mint kick right now.  This pretty much happens annually as St. Patrick’s Day rolls around.  Then, next thing you know it’s all about eggs, nests, and pastels :)

My husband has BBQs at his work usually at least once a month. (Yes, I know. Only in California.) It’s just for the IT team and everyone chips in and brings something for the group.  If it’s available, I always ask Chris to sign up for a dessert.  It’s a great excuse for me to bake up something yummy.  Like these Andes Triple Chocolate Mint Pudding Cookies.

I’ve always had a soft spot for chocolate cookies.  Guess that stems from my chocolate obsession.  I have a really great chocolate cookie recipe that I like to play around with by adding and subtracting ingredients.  I’ve done maraschino cherries, Reese’s, peppermintcherry-filled, and now these.

This week I wanted to make a chocolate mint pudding cookie.  Perfect, right? Well, it took me a couple of tries but I finally nailed it.

Chocolate pudding, semi-sweet chocolate chips, cocoa and andes baking chips are the key components of this cookie.  (You can never have too much, chocolate, right?) After the first go around I decided to stuff the cookie with an Andes mint. #bestdecisionever

The cookies bake up so soft and tender and are just packed with chocolate and mint flavor! The cookies were absolutely amazing but I didn’t stop there.  I melted more Andes baking chips and drizzled them on the top.  Then I made up a mint drizzle in a pretty green that really adds some pop to these cookies.  I’m a total sucker for a drizzle.
