Oreo-Stuffed Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012
A few months ago at the Central Florida Blogger Conference, I met Julie. She is adorable and so friendly. She spoke about food blogging at the conference and I found out she was from Orlando. Yay for local food bloggers! Julie and Lindsay had a sweet idea of doing a cookie swap for bloggers. This is the second year they hosted The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap and over 500 bloggers participated.
Each participant sent out a dozen cookies to 3 people, and we each received cookies too :) It was so fun finding packages of cookies on my doorstep! I received some amazing biscotti and chocolate chip cookies in the mail. Eric was happy to say the least.
When you say cookie, I immediately think of my favorite chocolate chip cookie. The recipe had to be new to the blog, so I made it a little festive for the holidays. These cookies are sweetened with mint chocolate chips and stuffed with Oreo cookie truffles. Hello YUM!

Cookies all ready to be shipped :)

I bet Santa would love these cookies. Happy baking!
