Choco-Mint Snaps Rolled Cookies

We needed something different for preparing sweet snacks. I love these! Nice light mint flavor with the chocolate. When doing them for Christmas, I tinted the sugar red and green for rolling :)

How To Create?


4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 1⁄4 cups shortening
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1⁄3 cup light corn syrup
2 1⁄2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
additional sugar, for rolling


    Melt chocolate squares over low heat.
    Remove from heat and cool.
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
    In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
    In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer at medium speed, cream the shortening and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy.
    Add eggs and blend well.
    Add reserved chocolate, corn syrup, water, and extracts and blend well.
    Stir in flour mixture until just blended.
    Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in additional sugar and place about 2-inches apart onto greased baking sheets.
    Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.
    Cool a few minutes on baking sheet and transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
