These are GREAT! One of my coworkers brought these cookies to a party, and I'm so happy I tracked this recipe down. She used Andes mints, but I only had plain chocolate chips, so I added 1 tsp mint extract during step 3. We both added about 8 drops of green food-coloring because bright green mint cookies just seemed more Christmasy. We also flattened the cookie balls slightly before baking. This is my favorite Christmas cookie recipe by far!

I have made this recipe for years. Unfortunatley Toll House no longer makes mint chips, so I use Andes mints now. I also add mint extract to bump up the flavor. During the holidays I roll the cookies in red, green and white colored crystal sugar to give them a festive look. They go over great with freinds and family. Definately a must make for me.

OMG - these are AMAZING! This recipe is going in my permanent file. So, sooooooooooooo good. I also used mint extract with regular chocolate chips - they were a hit!
