Chocolate pinwheels rolled with a mint flavored dough makes a special treat with coffee or tea.
Combine sugar, butter, egg, vanilla and peppermint extract in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough into 2 bowls. Add cooled melted chocolate to 1 dough; mix well. Add green food color to other dough; mix well. Shape each dough into 5x4-inch rectangle; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Roll out chocolate dough between two sheets of lightly floured waxed paper to 12x7-inch rectangle. Repeat with green dough. Place green dough on top of chocolate dough. Gently press doughs together. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, starting with 12-inch side; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.

I'm sad to say this recipe was a disaster for me. The dough was so soft and sticky that even after adding a little more flour, it was impossible to work with. I rolled it out and I couldn't even remove it from the wax paper, which I floured. I had to dump the whole batch. Not happy.
Have made this recipe for years and always very pleased and loved by all. I use Mint extract instead of peppermint extract. The green lends to the flavor expectation and I am surrounded by mint and chocolate fans.
I just made this for the first time and was very pleased. I did have some trouble with the dough when rolling it. It didn't roll smooth and I had some cracks in it. But it turned out fine and I can't wait to share them with my family
Very easy dough to work with. Looked great & added a lot of color & style to my cookie assortment. However, the texture seemed a little stale even when fresh & they could have been more flavorful. Maybe try bumping up the peppermint & chocolate.
Cookie is very pretty but I found the dough a little difficult to work with - on the soft side even after refrigerating overnight.
I made 3 batches of this one last Christmas. It's a keeper. Dough very easy to work with.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
