Tomorrow my little guy turns 10 years old.  Double digits!!  That is kind of a big deal.  I can’t even believe that he is that old already.  On a weekly and monthly basis time seems to go by quickly, but then you have kids.  The kids get older, and all of the sudden they are real people.  It just a few years he will be in high school, driving, and even dating.  I can’t take it.  He needs to stop growing up so quickly!  I have heard of families doing special trips and things when their child turns 10. Neither my husband or I grew up with anything like that, so I don’t know that we are.  But if you have traditions, leave a comment below, I might change my mind!

Mint Chocolate Pudding Cookies #ChristmasWeek #ChocolateParty

Chocolate Mint Cookies 2


Welcome to Christmas Week, a multi-blogger event co-hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. Each day we will be celebrating a new holiday baking theme where each blogger makes a dish they love. We hope you enjoy this fabulous event. Tune in each day starting Monday December 3rd and ending Friday December 7th.

Today also happens to be the December #ChocolateParty, where our themed ingredient was peppermint/mint.  Considering chocolate and mint are my favorite combination this time of year, this was easy for me!

I can’t even tell you how good these cookies were.  I took them into my son’s school for the teachers, and I had an email right away asking when I was posting the recipe.  I made these over a month ago, so I had to send the recipe ahead of time.  These were that good, they couldn’t wait.  Pudding is magic in cookies, I have said that before.  But it still makes me happy every time I use it :)  They are just so soft and chewy, even days later!

I made a similar cookie last year using Andes Mints, but this time I used the baking bits.  The bits are perfect, you get a little mint in each bite.  If you can’t find the bits, you could just chop up a the regular sized mints.  That might even be better, because then you get bigger chunks :)  If you are a fan of chocolate and mint, trust me when I say you HAVE to try these!
