Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies from Awesome on 20

When I was a kid, I absolutely loved Andes mints. I would break them in half in my mouth, and just let them melt. During a stay in the hospital when I was in high school, my great grandmother brought me a whole box of Andes mints that I could have all to myself, and that was sort of the best thing ever.

Before my fridge died, I managed to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies with chopped up Andes mints added in. They were buttery, chewy, and minty. The mint flavor is definitely present, but not overpowering, and the chocolate melts in your mouth, just the way I like it.

I took this batch of cookies to a friend’s bbq, and they were the only homemade thing on a table full of beautiful store bought cakes and cupcakes loaded with frosting and perfectly round chocolate chip cookies. I made about 50 cookies and came home with 10. Given their humble appearance, I’d say they were pretty popular.

If you love Andes mints, you must make these cookies. I’m sorry, but you really don’t have a choice. Buy yourself a box, eat half, and chop up the other half and throw them in your cookie dough. You’re welcome.
