I LOVE these minty cookies! They are soooo good, are deliciously moist and melt in your mouth. The recipe is originally from Toll House's "Best Loved Cookies" recipe book. **NOTE**: It is easy to make regular chocolate chips minty (if you have trouble finding mint-morsels) by placing them in a jar and taping a mint-extract soaked cottonball to the lid. After sealing and waiting a day or two, chips will absorb the scent and taste minty. OR just use chocolate chips and add about 1/4 tsp (or more depeding on how much you like mint!) mint extract to the dough along with the vanilla.

I made these last weekend. I didn't read the recipe properly and melted all of the Andes mint chips instead of only part of it. So I added about 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips later on in it's place. I enjoyed the flavor but they really spread out and were rather flat. I'm blaming that on my mistake with the chips. I will try these again as I enjoyed the flavor. Thank you : )

This was a really great recipe. Made a few changes, I melted the butter in with the chocolate only because I am always nervous about the chocolate clumping or drying out when melted by itself, and I also used plain semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the mint because my hubby Andy hates mint...go figure ;) Great recipe, definetly a keeper!

If I can make them delicious than anyone can. My friend said it was the best chocolate based cookie he had ever had. Not overpoweringly rich or minty. I used Andes chocolate instead of chocolate chips. I really love them and choose them for the care packages I send out to the Marines iraq. Thank you for the great recipe.
