  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 10 oz Andes Creme De Menthe baking chips

Process

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  3. In large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy.  Add the flour mixture into the butter mixture until well blended. Stir in the chocolate chips and mint chips. Drop rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring onto racks to cool completely.
