Have you seen these chips? I was so excited when I discovered them the other day at the grocery store. I just had to try the recipe printed on the back of the chocolate chip bag.
I love chocolate mint and these cookies do not disappoint. Be warned- unless you are a huge fan of mint (like me!), these might be a little too mint-y for you.The cookies have a distinct mint flavor and the dark chocolate chips and chocolate cookie base are delicious. We also thought that the texture was perfect.
They are awesome and they would be fun to bake for your friends and neighbors for Christmas.
