Mint Chocolate Cookies

I have always LOVED chocolate & mint, together or seperately.
So when I saw this recipe at Shazam in the Kitchen, I HAD to try it.
They are very good. They are nice & moist, almost like a brownie.

Mint Chocolate Cookies
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp mint extract
2 eggs
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
powdered sugar
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt in small bowl. In separate bowl, mix together melted chocolate, oil, sugar and mint. Add eggs one at a time stirring until blended. Add flour mixture into chocolate mixture. Cover dough and chill for at least 4 hours (no more than 2 days). Scoop out 1 tsp at a time into small balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place balls about 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on the pan for a minute before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

I did one thing differently.
I doubled the recipe. :)
