Chocolate Mint Snaps

I don’t know if I’ll get a chance to make these, but they sound good and rather unique. The intro to the recipe says they are crisp.

Also, someone posted this on Recipezaar and gave it 5 stars.

This makes a ton of cookies so you may want to cut it in half.

    These are my kids favorite cookies. My copy of Southern Living is so tattered but dragged out a few times a year.
