Mike's favorite flavor is Mint Chocolate. I needed a theme for the week, and had just bought some super cute green dinosaur liners (with him in mind) that matched! I sought out some mint extract in the North End and got to work. The end result tasted great, although I wish the frosting wasn't so icing-like. I ended up spreading instead of piping. I sprinkled them with some cookies'n'creme crumble and sent a box to Mike's to share.
(I don't think they were shared well) We'll have to make these again in the near future.
