Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies from MomOnTimeout.com
Last year I saved this recipe from a magazine but I never got around to making it until now.  Big mistake.  A yummy twist on the after dinner mint – these cookies are so incredibly scrumptious and gloriously green!  Using the cookie mix means minimal mess and super easy!  The boys had a good time helping me out and were fascinated by our “green cookies”.   Here’s what we did…
Ingredients:

1 pouch of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 c butter, softened
1/2 tsp mint extract
7 drops green food coloring
1 egg
1 c creme de menth baking chips
1 c semisweet or dark chocolate chips (I used a combination)

Directions:

Mix the cookie mix, butter, mint extract, green food color and egg in a bowl until a soft dough forms.

Make sure the food coloring is well incorporated.  The dough should be a uniform green color.

Add in the baking chips and chocolate chips and stir until well combined.  Use a teaspoon to drop dough two inches apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  You want to catch the cookies before they turn brown so keep an eye on them after 8 minutes.  Let the cookies cool for three minutes and then place on a wire rack to cool.

These cookies are so much fun because of their green color and refreshing flavors.  My husband has already requested a batch for his office and I will definitely be bringing these to one of our holiday parties.

  75. Ever tried these chips in any of your recipes, and especially these cookies?

    http://www.nuts.com/chocolatessweets/toppings/chips/mint-chocolate.html

    They seem to be pure mint chips (no chocolate). The site also has mint and chocolate chips, as well as raspberry and chocolate chips. I thought you might find them interesting to attempt cookies with.:)

  76. ROCIO LOPEZ VAZQUEZ A. says:

    I am soooo happy!! of knowing about your web site that I cannot believe about the wonderful information you have. You are a wonderful person of having create this site and for sharing it. Thank you very much.

  77. ROCIO LOPEZ VAZQUEZ A. says:

    I would like to know, what is the weight (oz) of a pouch of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix? because I live in Cuernavaca, Mor, Mexico; and it is hard to find this ingredient. I appreciate your answer.
