magic milk mint brOOkies

AuthorHeather WallaceCategoryDifficultyBeginner

Nothing goes together better than cookies and milk, except maybe brownies and milk.

This recipe combines the best of both worlds with a hint of mint that will make your glass of milk explode!

No, seriously...no joke...my milk exploded! I lifted my milk jug to pour a small amount into the batter and it hit my cabinet, which made the milk shoot out and up all over me, my counters, my floor-everywhere! I've never seen milk spray upwards the way that it did- it literally rained milk!

My husband got a good laugh when he came to see what my yelp was all about.

These cookies were wort it though.
