Mint Chocolate Hamantaschen for Purim. So long prune and poppy seed!!
Last week I shared my love for unconventional hamantaschen and my fear for SXSW mayhem. A lot of emotions going on there. This week? We are now just days away from Purim (Check out the video below of me making Hamantaschen on the local news! Boo yeah!) and still in the early days of SXSW. So far I’ve attended bar crawls, concerts, a blogging conference, and collected more koozies, bandanas, and free tacos and beer than a girl could possibly need. What is it about free koozies that makes me need ALL THE KOOZIES??? As if I don’t have 100 at home already. And it’s only Tuesday! Oy vey.
I think we can mostly agree that chocolate > not chocolate. And chocolate and cream cheese and mint? Well that’s downright heavenly. WWEstherDo? Eat the crap out of these hamantaschen. Fact. I filled the chocolate cookies with a creamy mint center. And then drizzled them in MORE chocolate. Because I can.
On Purim you are supposed to dress up, and get drunk, and celebrate life’s little miracles. What could be more of a miracle than these Mint Chocolate Hamantaschen? Besides the saving of the Jewish people of course.
