Happy New Year from Cupcake

2 Jan

Happy New Year, everyone.  New year… New recipe.  My husband requests these and they are perfect to take along to a gathering.  I seriously hope you peeps enjoy this recipe.  For some reason, I had trouble uploading the image.  I tried two different laptops, three different browsers, and had to restart my router a total of 5 times.  Bake the damn cookies and love them already.

Mint Chocolate Crinkles

Mint Chocolate Crinkles
Mmm…. minty. chocolatey. crinkley

Ingredients:

1 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 12 oz. package Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups granulated sugar

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

4 large eggs

Approx 1 cup of powdered sugar.

Directions:

(Whenever I’m baking cookies, I always try to remember to set out the butter and eggs ahead of time to bring them to room temp).

Microwave the semi-sweet chocolate chips in a medium, uncovered microwave-safe bowl on high (100%) for 1 minute.  Stir.  The chocolate chips may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at an additional 10 to 15 second intervals, stirring until smooth.  Allow to cool to room temperature.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.  Beat granulated sugar, butter and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl.  Beat in melted chocolate.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Gradually beat in dry ingredients.  Stir in the creme de menthe baking chips.  Cover and refrigerate until just firm.

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls; roll in powdered sugar until well-coated.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until the sides are set but centers are still slightly soft.  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes and remove to wire racks to cook completely.

Enjoy,

Cupcake
