Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium heavy saucepan combine the 2 cups chocolate pieces and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Cook and stir over low heat until melted. Cool slightly.
  4. In a large mixing bowl beat remaining butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar; beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, one at a time, scraping sides of bowl after each addition. Beat in the melted chocolate mixture and vanilla until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat on low speed until well combined. Stir in the 1 cup mint candy pieces.
  5. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Dip half of each cookie into Chocolate Ganache; let excess drip back into bowl. If desired, drizzle with additional ganache. Let stand until ganache is set.
