Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies



Peppermint Choc Chip is my favorite ice-cream flavor in the world. So I thought, why not Peppermint Choc Chip Cookies with green coloring and everything. This is a bit of a "cheat" recipe because it's Betty Crocker.. BUT who cares! I still had to mix the cookie dough, and I still had to spoon cookie dough onto a baking sheet, and I still had to bake the cookies for 10 minutes! This is brilliant.. except I need people to help me eat again. I have way too many yummy gooey cookies now, and I really shouldn't eat them all.

INGREDIENTS:
 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
6 to 8 drops green food color
1 egg
1 cup creme de menthe baking chips
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks

DIRECTIONS:
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, extract, food color and egg 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 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

 

I made a little video to say "hello"... my first time showing my face on video. A bit shy... lol.

  14. The cookies remind me of the Grinch, green on the outside with a black heart...very Christmassy also! I adore mint-chocolate icecream also! Your video greeting is very cute!

    Betty Crocker rules, when I first went out on my own, that was the cookbook that I used to cook everything, and I still use it!
