With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner I couldn’t think of a more perfect recipe to share than for these Chocolate Mint Pinwheel Cookies. They’re SO fun and festive and would look adorable at any St. Patty’s Day celebration. If you usually stay in with your family on this holiday, these cookies are also super fun to make and would be a great activity for any little ones in your life. What is your tradition for this green and gold-filled holiday?
With this recipe all we’re really doing is mixing up some sugar cookie dough, then simply dividing the dough in half and adding green food coloring to one half and cocoa powder to the other half. Then we roll out each half with a rolling pin while the dough is room temperature and super pliable (it’s almost like play dough!) and place one sheet of dough on top of the other and roll up. Before slicing into cookie rounds, we chill the dough to ensure it keeps its round shape. It’s that easy!
