Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
I did warn you I was going a little crazy with the mint, yes? This recipe shouldn’t be a surprise to you! While I’ve been playing with mint, I decided to use it in my absolute favorite chocolate chip cookies recipe to get these AH-mazing Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies. Seriously so good. Sweet, chewy, and minty with the decadent, bitter note of chocolate chips. Yum.
For these cookies, I used half chocolate chips and half Andes Menthe Baking Chips (you can grab those HERE on Amazon), but you can use one or the other, or both, like me. They’ll turn out delicious no matter what kind of chip you use!
