Used After Eight mint chocolate (chopped them myself). Brought all 50 to my volleyball match and they were gone before I could take pictures!!

I used Junebug's alteration of the Andes mint chunks and excluded the mint extract, they were wonderful! Thanks for sharing Elaine!

My DD made these and since she didn't have mint chips she added 2-teaspoons of mint extract. She also reduced the sugar and replaced it with 1/4 cup of Splenda. She also added white chocolate chips.

Very nice mint taste, I added only 1 cup of sugar as I don't like a real sugary taste, the cookies tasted perfect!

I gave a slightly varied version of these out with my Holiday treat plates. Minor changes were a bit more extract, extra aprox. 1/4 cup of flour(I guess because of the extra liquid it needed it to thicken up for me a bit more)I also wanted to make them sort of like peppermint candy-canes to contrast the chocolate, and nut flavors of the rest of the plate. So I used white chips (12 ounce bag- I'm heavy handed) and added red food coloring. Refreshing is the perfect word for these, they were different and quite a hit!

These are a delicious and different twist on the normal chocolate chip cookie. I used a 12 ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the mint ones, and I increased the peppermint extract to 2 tsp to compensate. My husband loved these! Thank you

I'm in love! I love how simple and yummy these are! Because their is no brown sugar they are really different! I didn't add any mint extract or chips, Just made normal choco chip cookies and they were the best! YEY!

Very good chocolate mint cookies. Andes mint chunks were used and no mint extract. They were plenty minty. Thank you for sharing your recipe Elaine!
