These Shamrock Mint Cookies are stuffed full of Andes Mint Pieces and topped with big puffy Mint Marshmallows and Junior Mints.
Can’t believe we are already two months into this year!
The year will be over before you know it.
Okay, maybe that’s an over exaggeration.
But it will go by fast.
They always do.
Remember those mint marshmallows I made?
These Shamrock Mint Cookies are why I made them.
I wanted a cookie that would have a gooey half melted marshmallow on it.
Not totally sure why but it just sounded really good.
And I wanted Junior Mints.
Also Andes Mints.
Yeah, I’ve kind of been on a mint kick lately.
Which is good since St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner.
Hence the shamrock sprinkles.
You don’t need them…but why not?
Sprinkles make everything more fun.
You can just use green sanding sugar if you want or no green at all.
All I know is if you like mint…make these.
And last but not least it’s a great day to buy my cookbook.
