So I may have said I would post these last week, but then things got cray, and I posted a guest post for s’mores bars instead, sorryyy;
you probably know by now that my life is as hectic as a whole bottle of sprinkles charged with static electricity (those sprinkles would be flying eeeevrywhere).
But I’ve also been working on another post, which is coming your way on Wednesday (a special, birthday post :O ) and if you be following me on instagram or twitter, you probably already know what it is that I’m posting
Lets turn the conversation to cookies (okay, I say conversation, I really mean: me talking and you having to listen to me ramble on about my life)
Two of my bestest friends are obsessed with peppermint mochas from Starbucks.
It’s the only thing I think they order from Starbucks, all. year. round.
They’re pretty crazy,
Hah, oh rhyming, you never get old :’)
So naturally, when I was mixing up minty chocolate for my thin mints, I heard their voices telling me:
“Izy. Hey. Hey Izy. Izy. You know what would go great with that minty chocolate combo you’ve got going on there? COFFEE. ADD SOME FREAKING COFFEE IZY. DO EHT.”
so I did
and it was brilliant.
and I told them about the cookies,
and I posted pictures on instagram, and their facebook walls,
and I said they could have some.
Buuuut I had forgotten that I’d promised them to my mum for her book club, sooo :/
They didn’t get to eat any…
…but, as they say “It’s the thought that counts” – although, I think if I said that to them, they’d probably make me buy them peppermint mochas.
Venti peppermint mochas (<— that is real talk right there, no one pulls the Venti card unless they are getting seeeerious)
I, on the other hand, got to eat pleeeeenty of them (you know taste testing, quality control, making sure the chocolate was set, photos…) MWAHAHAHA
so I can testify that they were deeeelish!
Follow the exact same instructions as with the Thin Mints, but with the following changes:
- use white chocolate instead of semisweet (you could use semisweet though, ngl, it would probably be awesome too)
- you’ll also need about 3 tbsp of coffee grounds – sprinkle a little onto the chocolate-dipped oreo before the chocolate sets.
- I also sprinkled some chocolate flaky sprinkle things, and crushed candy canes on some of the cookies – that was more for decoration rather than flavour, but if you’re feelin it, go for it!
