These are chocolate mint cookies that just happen to look like well you know… so after a quick family poll we came up with the name Reindeer Poop Cookies! The kids will get a kick out of the name and love the flavor!
I highly recommend storing these Reindeer Poop Cookies in a separate air tight container away from other cookies so they don’t share their minty flavor with all of your cookies!
This is day 5 in our 7 Days of Cookies, if you missed the rest here they are: Snickerdoodles, Chocolate Crinkles, Cranberry Noel Cookies, Russian Tea Cakes, Chocolate Pretzel Bark, Cream Cheese Logs, and Italian Cookies.
