Creme De Menthe Chocolate Chip Cookies

5 Mar

These Andes baking chips are only sold for a limited time and in select locations so when I saw them I quickly bought them. However, they’ve been sitting in my fridge for so long because I’ve been contemplating the perfect way to make use out of them. Enter – double chocolate chip cookies. Chocolate mint is one of my favorite flavor combos and these cookies do a great job of highlighting it (possibly because I put a ton of extract in them). I’m taking these babies on the car tomorrow as roadtrip food on the way to NEW ORLEANS FOR MARDI GRAS. Please enjoy this recipe and this picture which I am really proud of.
