I made these cookies once before I was married and everyone on the block wanted some! I went around delivering them to various family members who were much appreciative. I made them again this week to take to our church small group. They seemed to be a big hit, especially with the kids. Every time I turned around someone was taking a bite of one!
Have you ever had an Andes mint, like what Olive Garden gives out after your meal? If you like those, you’ll love these cookies. I’m a huge mint chocolate fan!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Sugar cookie mix
- Mint extract
- Green food coloring
- Andes mint baking chips
- Dark chocolate chips
First of all, make sure your butter is softened! You might want to leave out for a little bit before starting this recipe — it just makes it easier to cream the butter and sugar cookie mix together. That’s your first step by the way! Cream together the butter and sugar cookie mix.
Mix in the egg. Mix in the mint extract and food coloring. I used about 10 drops of green food coloring. The green color helps people know these cookies have a mint flavor. My husband says they look moldy, but he’s not a mint fan.
Mix in the baking chips and chocolate chips.
Spoon the dough onto a baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Let them cool, and then let the enjoyment begin!
