Mint Chocolate Fudge M&M Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mint Chocolate Fudge M&M Oatmeal Pudding Cookies are an original creation. I developed them for my husband to give his mathematics students during their state tests. There are two unique ingredients inside the dough: pure mint extract and a mint chocolate frosting creations packet. (Some studies have shown that mint can help students focus and perform better on exams, hence the addition). The mint flavorings accent the chocolate fudge pudding in the cookies quite well. The rolled oats add a pleasant chew, while the M&M’s contribute a sweet crunch to these yummy treats.
