My absolute favorite tastes are mint and chocolate! So when I found this recipe I knew it would be an instant favorite. Most cookies have a vanilla base with chocolate chips to fill them. Yet this cookie has a chocolate base with mint chips. It creates a flavor burst then minute you place it in your mouth.

The recipe calls for green mint chips, but I used the Andes Mint chips because they are in season. The green chips really stand out on the chocolate base cookie, but taste so delicious!

I love how simple this recipe is to make and even more, the many complements I receive when I make them. They are an instant crowd pleaser!

So whether you are craving something sweet or need a new treat to take to a party, this recipe is the one for you!
