Great if you like shots of creme de menthe and cookies that looked like someone got sick in the shape of tiny balls. They went right in the trash.. what a waste of time. 1 star

Would make this again.
To have it less sweet, roll the cookies into pure cocoa powder instead of powdered Sugar.

It was too sweet but like the idea and I will make it again with cocoa. Thanks.
