Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tired of plain old chocolate chip cookies? Check out my current favorite cookie that is so easy to make! The color may fool you, but these mint chocolate chip cookies are addictive; they taste just like you’re eating a bowl of minty ice cream.

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
½ cup butter or margarine, softened
¼ -1/2-teaspoon mint extract (more = stronger mint taste; baker’s preference)
6 to 8 drops green food color (again, use more for greener cookies)
1 egg
1-cup creme de menthe baking chips (I chopped up a bag of Andes Mints)
1-cup semisweet chocolate chunks

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, extract, food color and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in creme de menthe baking chips and chocolate chunks.

Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

I am usually really picky on recipes I will make from Pinterest (let’s just say I have made 5 bad meals for every 1 good meal) but this has got to be my favorite! Easy to make and my whole family loved them!
