Grandma's Chocolate Mint Cookies

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by nranger7

My favorite cookies since I was a little girl - and I don't really like mint! Thanks Grandma! :) Times and amounts are approximate since I haven't been able to make these in a long time. I can never find the mint chocolate chips when I want to bake! And I've never owned a double boiler...keeping an eye on the chips as they melt on the stove works just fine.

These are really good and super easy. Unfortunately, I had been dipping into my bag of mint morsels a little too much so didn't get the full two cups of mint chocolate in my batter. Will try to show a little more restraint next time.These do stay soft. A nice change of pace. Thanks.
