MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!

After seeing all these cookies being baked on so many of your blogs, I got the itch to do homemade chocolate chip cookies too! This time, though, I added mint chips as well. I LOVE mint and chocolate chip together!

My three little ones were more than eager to help, and all I had to do was designate who was doing what. This way, it cuts down on all the fighting and whining.

I'm a copycat, and had to take a picture of some of the ingredients I was using (like everyone else does).

I used the good ole' Nestle Toll House Cookie mix on the bag plus my mint chips.

This was after Veronica put the butter in the bowl.

Yes, I know, I skipped a few steps, but here they are!!! They were all gone that night! And if you notice they are semi-flat. I need new baking soda! But, they were so good!

Despite the fact that I avoid mint like the plague, the cookies look yummy. I was in the baking mood tonight, but didn't feel like going out to the store in the cold :)

Pretty bowls. I had a few cookies this weekend, but they didn't look anywhere near as delicious as your special mint ones!

What a great idea, thanks for sharing. I had chocolate chip cookies with cherry Kool-aid the other day, interesting combo but good and festive looking.
