Chocolate Mint Malted Cookies

 

This was my second year participating in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

to raise funds for Cookies for Kid’s Cancer

Chocolate and Mint Malted Cookies

 

I had my cookie picked out long ago

had all the items ready

even had packaging

you’d think then I would have shipped early

you’d be wrong

 

Cookies

 

December 2nd really snuck up on me, and there I was mailing at the last possible moment.

Maybe next year I’ll be ahead.

My swap buddies however did not wait.  I was so excited when right after Thanksgiving my first two boxes arrived.  Delicious cookies from Clarks Condensed {aka Katie} and  Melissa from The Baked Equation

My last box was from Rachel who blogs over at I Love My Disorganized Life

German Chocolate Sandwich Cookies…I ate them all by myself.

 

Chocolate Malted Cookies

 

I can only hope my chocolate and mint malted cookies were half as good as the one I received.

My recipe is adapted from this one at Cooking Light
