A Once a Year Treat

So once a year, I get a chance to stockpile cookies and hide them from my husband. This year my goal was to save a box to bake with. After months of hearing about them whenever our freezer was opened, I realized it was use them or lose them time (after all I'm not home all the time to say no). 

I actually decided to track my base recipe additions this time (as seen below), just couldn't come up with a name...

Base vanilla recipe - melted butter, not softened for lighter texture
6 Tbsp Dark Cocoa
9 Chocolate Mint Cookies (mixed in batter)

3/8 cup Dark Cocoa
4 cups Confectioners Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2tsp Water

Garnish with cookie crumbles.
