Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you are a fan of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream…
you will be a fan of these.

I enjoy trying new treats for the holidays.
Variety is nice for parties and sweets for the neighbors.

What attracted me to these was the fun green color.
The taste will bring me back!DSC_0041

1 (1 pound 1.5 ounce) pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
6 drops green food color
1 egg
1 cup creme de menthe baking chips
(Andes makes these)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
(I used chips, since that was what I had on hand)

Mix cookie mix, butter, extract, food color and egg in bowl, until soft dough forms.
Stir in creme de menthe baking chips and chocolate chunks.

    Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
    Bake at 350 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.
    Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
    Serve warm or cool completely.
    Store tightly covered at room temperature.
