Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Sparkle 1874

I am not the greatest mint lover but even I have to admit that the fusion of mint and chocolate will silence the toughest critic. This recipe from "Hershey's Kitchen" will satisfy the strongest chocolate craving while leaving a refreshing aftertaste. (This cookie can be made with any flavour chips and all by itself).

I love Girl Scout Thin Mints, but never usually buy them. I altered this recipe a bit, just based on my own desire for a twist. Instead of 2 tsp of vanilla, I added 1 tsp of vanilla to 1 tsp of peppermint extract...maybe a little more to taste. I also flipped the sugar measurements, opting for 1 cup of dark brown sugar to 3/4 cup of granulated sugar. From experience, I know that brown sugar yields a chewier cookie than a recipe with more white sugar. Then I added about 1/2 cup of Andes Creme de Menthes and only used 6oz of mini semi-sweet morsels. The end result was amazing with a stronger mint undertone. Everyone loved them, and I loved how soft they were.
