Directions:
Whisk flour, cocoa and baking powder in medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl at medium speed 2 to 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla 1 minute or just until blended. At low speed, beat in flour mixture just until blended.

Shape dough into 8x6-inch rectangle; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until dough is firm, 1 hour or overnight.

Heat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut dough into 48 pieces; flatten each piece into 2-inch round. Mold each round around half a mint and enclose completely. Place on baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until cookies are dry to the touch and slightly soft when gently pressed. Cool completely on wire racks.
