Apparently there is a national food holiday every year called Mint Chocolate Day. Did you know this? Neither did I. No, it’s not today. It would be really cool if it was and I was totally on top of it like that but apparently I am not. I’m not the cool kid all over those food holidays like it’s no one’s business. Instead I’m the one that’s tagging along after every other cool kid already posted their Mint Chocolate recipes. Yup, things haven’t changed since grade school. I’m the wanna be tag along. In case you were wondering Mint Chocolate Day actually fell on February 19th this year. I should probably mark my calendar for next year so I’m in with the cool kids huh?

Mint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies ~ Quick& Easy, Soft, Chewy Chocolate Cookies Stuffed Creamy Mint Filling!

 Are you a mint fan? I find it to be one of those flavors that everyone seems to either like or hate. There isn’t really an in between. My hubs for instance claims he hates it until I actually make mint and then it seems that he actually doesn’t hate it. He usually gobbles up the treats containing mint with not hesitation. Take these cookies for instance. He comes home for lunch and his eyes light up because there are fresh treats on the counter, then he sees the green filling and he goes oooohhhhhh mint. Yes, dear mint. Why don’t you just try them and give them a taste test for me as I bat my eyelashes. He obliges and pretty soon he’s on his second, and possibly his third. I may roll my eyes and smirk. Score one for me. Apparently you really don’t hate mint sweetie. You just act like you do.

 These Mint Chocolate Sandwich Cookies are so easy and impressive. I’ve always stayed away from a sandwich cookie because in my mind I imaged them as being hard to make. In fact I kind of grimaced at the thought of making them. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to pull these off quickly using a chocolate cake mix for the cookie base. It made this so much easier and soon I had mastered these cute, easy and delicious cookies. Even if you have some mint haters in the family I’m guessing they will also be stealing these when you aren’t looking!

      What a great idea! I’m making note of this holiday so I can make something for it next year. 🙂

    • Maya @ Maya - Kitchenette


      awww Julie!! this sandwich cookies looks so happy 🙂

    • Annie @Maebells


      These look delicious! I love little sweet treats like this!

    • Erin @ The Speckled Palate


      I had no idea there was a Mint Chocolate Day… and I kind of want to celebrate it next year. But until then, I think we can all agree that making these cookies is a FANTASTIC idea.

      I’m kind of in the same boat as your husband right now — pregnancy has turned my tastebuds wonky, and mint is currently not working for me — but I’ve pinned this for later because I desperately want to like mint again. Because mint and chocolate? One of my favorite pairings!

    • Michelle { A Latte Food }


      All I can say is yum! These are absolutely adorable! Plus their size totally allows me to justify eating 3 or 4 (let’s be real, probably more). Love!

    • Renee@Two in the Kitchen


      I LUV mint and I would totally gobble these up!! I always miss those goofy “food holidays” too. I have a feeling it’s only food bloggers who pay attention to those anyway! 😉 It doesn’t matter, I’d eat these any day of the week!!

    • Ashley C.


      It doesn’t have to be a national holiday for me to want one of these sandwich cookies! I love the combination of mint and chocolate and these look perfect!

    • Julie | This Gal Cooks


      Oh I’m totally with you about the food holidays. I do not keep up with them nor do I know that most of them exist! We can just pretend that today is mint chocolate day and load up on these little gems!

    • Jen @ Baked by an Introvert


      These look delicious, Julie! The perfect ratio of filling to cookie. Pinning!

    • Jocelyn @BruCrew Life


      I’m right there with you posting mint chocolate treats now. I really need to google that food calendar and try to work ahead…yeah, that’s probably not going to happen! I love these easy filled cookies. The bright green frosting with the chocolate cookies is just too fun!!!

    • Kelly - Life Made Sweeter


      I always seem to miss the food holidays but I do love chocolate and mint together! These cookie sandwiches look flawless! I love the texture of the cookies – these are just perfect!

    • KaCee


      These look so good! I think they would make a perfect St. Patrick’s day dessert!

    • Teresa


      I made these for my St. Patrick’s Day work potluck tomorrow. VERY good! Wondering if instead of mint extract (for a different event) if vanilla extract would be good to use?

      • Julie Evink


        Yes you can use any type of extract or food coloring! Like lemon and yellow or orange and orange 🙂

        • Teresa+Youngman


          Thank you Julie!
