I know I seem to talk about food and baking an awful lot lately, but bear with me…if only because these are the best cookies you will ever eat. For ages. For serious. I mean, I’m speaking specifically to the people who love their mint and chocolate, but even if you’re on the fence about this delicious combination…these will tip you into full-blown fandom.Β 

Okay, enough rambling. I used this Peppermint Pattie Cookie recipe from How Sweet It Is; Jessica added a chocolate drizzle to hers, which I will absolutely be adding next time, but for ease of transport (these were made for a friends’ birthday do) I left it off. If you, er, ‘accidentally’ double the peppermint extract, then you’re going to need a little chocolate drizz to even out the flavours.

So…these were the perfect accompaniment to a lazy saturday. First, brunch with, like, all the food, and the most amazing mini cinnamon rolls ever (Lia, I need that recipe!) and about five hours of excellent chat, mimosas, scrabble and Africa catch-ups. And then a birthday do. And more food. And more chat. And some wine. Pretty Damn Awesome. Definitely made up for today’s slightly wasted day in front of a computer in the name of learning (don’t ask).

Knowing what my to-do list looks like tomorrow, I certainly wish I had more of these stashed away for a little ‘me’ time…

    I came across this recipe on Pinterest and laughed because of your Union mug! My mom is Vice President there and I graduated in 2008. Are you an alum?

      Hey Liz, small world! I did my term abroad there way back in 2005 and my boyfriend who I met there (now living in the UK with me) graduated from there in 2009! I loved Union; I really wanted to stay the whole year but so did all the other UK students and they wouldn’t let us all stay…
