Minty Green Goodness

Happy St. Patty's Day!!!! This year we were surprisingly busy on St. Patrick's Day, but I did squeeze in some time for these delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies--thank goodness for Betty Crocker! ;)

These cookies taste so good! Who knew that mint and chocolate could work so well in cookie form?

I'm not a big fan of mixes, but after some doctoring from the Betty Crocker website, they certainly can be mighty tasty!

1pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4to 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
6to 8 drops green food color
1cup creme de menthe baking chips
cup semisweet chocolate chunks

  1. 1
    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.
  2. 2
    Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. 3
    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.
