Chocolate-Mint Evergreen Christmas Tree Cookies

These lovely Christmas tree cookies have a mint puffy frosting tree and nonpareil and sprinkles for ornaments.  They would make a great addition to a Christmas cookie swap.

They are great with milk, but for an extra special chocolate experience, serve these cookies with a glass of chocolate milk or a mug of hot chocolate.

Don’t forget to leave one out for Santa to eat on Christmas Eve! If you have kids, make sure to check out our posts with Santa’s address and the official Santa phone number, so he will get their wishlist in time.
