Snow-Topped Chocolate Mint Cookies

Our family volunteered for several summers, taking in Japanese students from a student exchange program. Our older daughters were taking Japanese language classes at college during this time.

This is a family favorite cookie recipe from 2008 translated from Japanese.

Kris Krinkles (or Snow-Topped Chocolate Mint Cookies)
2 C. mint semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 ½ C. flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
