I wanted to bake so much to relieve some of the unhappiness that has happened over the week. Did not want to bake the usual,wanted to bake something new.I looked at the mint plant Hubby bought for me over the weekend and had an idea.Mint plus Hubby's fave,thats chocolate.

I am using a combination of this recipe and this recipe but used creaming method instead.I am a lazy baker!
