Double Dipped Mint Shortbread Cookies

Yum
With St. Patrick's Day less than two weeks away, it's time to start sharing some sweet treats...
starting with...


Double Dipped Mint Shortbread Cookies
are so minty good.  These minty shortbread cookies are dipped on each end.  One side in semi sweet chocolate and the other in white chocolate.  It will be so hard to decide which side start at!
Start at the semi-sweet chocolate end?
Or, munch on the white chocolate end first?
Maybe just start in between and get a little bit of both chocolates!
Sounds like you will need to try all the ways!  But first you need to bake 'em so you need a recipe of course. Here ya go...

Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg
2 2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp mint extract
10 drops of green food coloring
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 Tbsp whipping cream
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3 Tbsp whipping cream
green sprinkles
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, cream together sugar and softened butter until light and fluffy.  Beat in the egg and then add the mint extract.  Slowly mix in the flour and salt.  Once well combined, add the 10 drops of green food coloring.  Roll the green dough into 1" balls and flatten with a glass.  Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from cookie sheet and cool on a wire rack.  Once cookies are cooled, place semi sweet chocolate chips and 3 Tbsp whipping cream in a microwave safe bowl.  Cook for 30 seconds on high.  Stir and repeat until chocolate is melted.  Dip one end of mint shortbread cookies into the semi sweet chocolate.  Place back on wire rack to dry.  Once dry, place white chocolate chips and 3 Tbsp whipping cream into a microwave safe bowl.  Cook for 30 seconds on high.  Stir and repeat until chocolate is melted.  Dip the other end of the mint shortbread cookies into the white chocolate.  Sprinkle green sprinkles on white chocolate while wet.  Let dry.




Everyone is Irish this time of year!

One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him.

  2. Thanks to Doctor Razor for the Great miraculous work he did in my life with his herbal remedy. I have been living with this virus and I have shared with my partners my situation because they deserve to have a choice of whether they want to change being with me or not. I unfortunately did not have a choice in this matter leaving me vulnerable and now faced with this virus for the rest of my life or until a cure was discovered.I refused to take the Medical drugs my PCD had told me to take, I surrendered to my fate, because I was careless. On Aug 23, 2020, I came across Doctor Razor herbal medicine. I browsed about the authenticity of This Doctor, I got to see several Testimonies regarding his works from people he had helped with his medicine. I reached out to him and told him my problems, after we spoke he promised to help me out. I started using his herbal medicine which he sent to me Via the Courier Delivery, and asked me to take the herbal medicine for 18 days. which i did. I am delighted to let you all know that I Got cured of Herpes Virus, after the Medical Doctor had confirmed this with the test results, when I went for a medical check up after completing the Herbal Dosage Of 18 days.
