    Those sound awesome! Can’t go wrong with mint + chocolate! 🙂

  • Jocelyn+(Grandbaby+cakes)


    Holy moly these cookies are amazing girl!

  • Kelly - Life Made Sweeter


    I am a little bit of all those too 🙂 These cookies look incredible and definitely need to be added to my holiday cookie list! Love anything with mint and chocolate together!

  • Jen @ Baked by an Introvert


    Your cookies look perfect! I love the chocolate and mint combo.

  • Trish - Mom On Timeout


    Okay seriously, how cute are these? A must-have on the holiday cookie trays this year Julie!

  • Lorna


    Julie, In your chocolate mint thumbprint cookie recipe in the “mint fudge” portion of the recipe you list ” 1 5 ounce can sweetened condensed milk” as one of the ingredients. I have never seen sweetened condensed milk in a can that size. Do you mean”evaporated milk?” instead? I buy 5 ounce cans of evaporated milk quite often for different recipes. Can you get back to me on this? thanks much.. Lorna Rohr

    • Julie Evink


      Ah sorry it should have been 1/2 can of the 14 oz sweetened condensed milk!

  • Lynn


    I’m not familiar with Candiquik. Is it available in grocery store? Substitute? Thank you!

    • Julie Evink


      It’s a type of Almond Bark! You can use any Almond Bark.

  • Jolyne


    So excited to make these! My first attempt at baking after major surgery so it may take me longer than it normally would.

    I LoVe mint! So I’m thinking of using less vanilla and adding mint to the actual cookie. Thoughts?

    • Julie Evink


      You can do that if you really like mint, but I wouldn’t add as much mint to the dough as the vanilla extract as it’s stronger.

      • Jolyne


        Thanks for your reply. I’m just getting ready to make them now 🙂 I don’t know if they’ll be very photogenic though hahaha.

  • ma


    Going to make these with the homemade mint extract I made with mint from my garden. Do I add the mint to the condensed milk or the white chocolate or after those two are combined? Can’t wait to make these! yum!

    • Julie Evink


      Add after the two are combined.

  • sonaly


    its nice

  • Lee


    These look DANGEROUSLY amazing! I am obsessed with mint green 😀

  • heather+@french+press


    I’ll take mint fudge in my cookie any day

  • cara


    Are these chewy or crunchy?

  • emily rasmason


    do these freeze well?

    • Julie Evink


      Yes I froze them and it worked great!
