Irresistible Chocolate Mint Surprise Cookies

chocolate mint surprise cookiesIf you're still searching for the perfect Christmas cookies, search no more. These amazing chocolate mint surprise cookies I found over at Like Mother, Like Daughter - Food, are just what Santa Claus wants to see on the plate you leave out for him tonight -- trust me.

Fudgy and chocolaty on the outside, there's a creamy, cool mint treat in the middle. Not too much, but rather just the perfect hint of mint amidst all of the chocolate. They're also incredibly easy to make as they start with a cake mix. Just make sure you make enough for Santa AND you.
