Chocolate Mint Frosted Drop Cookies

These are a great cookie! Soft Chocolate Mint Drop Cookies,with a Chocolate Mint Frosting that tastes like Ice Cream & then topped with Pastel Mint Candies! 
3 & 1/2 Cup Flour
4 Tablespoons Cocoa
1 Cup Softened Butter
2 Cups Sugar
4 One Ounce Squares Unsweetened Baking Chocolate Melted & cooled
2 Eggs
1 & 1/2 Cups Buttermilk
2 Teaspoons Pure Mint Extract
Beat butter, add sugar the cooled chocolate & beat again. Now add eggs & beat again. Sift all the dry ingredients together. Stir the mint extract & buttermilk together. Now add about 1/3 of your dry ingredients to your butter mixture & beat. Now add 1/3 of the buttermilk, mint mixture & beat again. Continue alternating ending with your dry ingredients & beating until well blended. Chill your dough. When ready to bake drop by using heaping tablespoons of dough onto your baking sheets leaving plenty of room  for them to bake, I do about 9 cookies per sheet. Bake in a preheated oven of 400 degrees for 8 to 9 minutes! Remove from sheets & let cool. Once cool frost with the following frosting!
8 Tablespoons of Softened Butter
3 Cups of cooled melted sweet or semi sweet Chocolate, I used Milk Chocolate Wilbur Melting Wafers!
1 Teaspoon Pure Mint Extract
3 Cups Powdered Sugar
Dash of Salt
1/2 to 3/4 Cup Light Cream or !/2 & 1/2
Beat butter & chocolate together, add a little of sugar, salt, mint extract & little of the cream & beat. Ad sugar & cream a little at a time until frosting is incorporated & the consistency you desire! Frost cookies like in the picture & decorate with candy  I used Pastel Mint Candies! Store in an airtight container with wax paper between the layers! Makes about 5 dozen big cookies!
