What goes to better than chocolate and mint? Not much. You could use Hershey's mint chips or you could even use Andes mint chips. These are super simple to make and pack a really yummy bang! You should add these to your Holiday cookie making list. They would be super easy to make for a cookie exchange or for neighbors.
