Day 13: Chocolate Mint Truffle Blossoms

Here is another take on the mint chocolate combination.  I have been all over the chocolate cookie scene with this cookie challenge. To be honest most of these chocolate ones are new to me. I normally never bake with cocoa powder. This is not to say I don’t LOVE chocolate, I just normally don’t use it. Odd.

These came to me the other day when walking past an end-cap at Target.  Hershey defiantly goes all out when it comes to switching up flavors.  They make Pumpkin Spice, Candy Apple, Chocolate Cherry, Chocolate with Almonds, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate Hugs, Melt Aways, Air Delights, Candy Cane, Chocolate Coconut, Chocolate Caramel, and finally Mint Truffle!

Can you believe all those flavors? I really enjoy the Pumpkin Spice, Dark Chocolate, Hugs, Milk Chocolate, and now the Mint Truffle!

Now go get your bag before they are gone for the season!
