1/4 tsp         salt
1/4 tsp         baking soda
1  3/4           stick butter (14 Tbsp)

3 Tbsp         milk
1/2 tsp          vanilla

1.   Mix together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda.
2.   In a separate bowl, cream butter until smooth.
3.   Add sugar and beat for 1 minute.
4.   Add milk, vanilla, and mint extract. Beat for 1 minute. Slowly add the dry ingredients
     while beating.
5.   Once mixture is well-combined and resembles small pebbles, use your hands to form a ball.
6.   Roll the dough into a log and wrap in wax paper.
7.   Chill for 2 hours.
8.   Slice into thin rounds and place on parchment.
9.   Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes.

12.  When cookies have been cooked and become cool and crispy, coat
     them in chocolate by dipping them or using an icing knife.
