Have you seen the new Sweet Mint Popcorn?!?! I’m not even a mint fan and it’s a whole new level of addiction. It’s goooooooooooooooooooooooood! And crunchy, and minty, and sweet, and heeelllooo Elf, Home Alone, Love Actually, Serendipity movie marathon while downing the bag!!

And so true to my nature, I mock it all up and toss it in some cookies!! …. And then down all of them during the movie marathon!!

I dedicate these cookies to my bestie, even though she hasn’t eaten them, I thought of her the entire time while making them. There’s no one I know who loves mint and chocolate more than her … not kidding, it’s kind of like my chocolate peanut butter addiction.. except on a whole new level … not kidding, like Aladdin’s whole new world kind of level. It’s very possible that I’ve now successfully scarfed down enough cookies that I no longer know what the heck I’m talking about… not kidding!
