I need to send a shout out to Hershey’s for making these awesome Mint Chocolate Chips! Without you I cannot make double chocolate mint cookies! Thanks, Hershey’s!!!
I seriously love mint so these chocolate chips and these cookies make me deliriously happy! When I realized I had a bag of these mint chocolate chips in my pantry and I had a hankering for baking (my kitchen was clean after all!) I started doing my happy dance. And then set to work. Nevermind that my stand mixer bowl and paddle were in the dishwasher (that was halfway through the cycle). Cookies were about to get made!
I got out my back up hand mixer and a shiny bowl.
I busted out the largest bag of baking soda ever just for 1/2 tsp.
I got an arm workout mixing the thick dough with my little mixer.
I scooped my cookies out with my secret tool for making the perfect size and shape of cookies.
I might have reserved a few chips from being tossed into the dough so that I could eat them while the first batch was cooking. (Seriously you should reserve some chips because they are creamy, minty and delicious! Or if you don’t want to bake cookies just eat the whole bag! I don’t judge!)
Hubby came downstairs the instant he heard the second dozen come out of the oven because he knew the first dozen would be cool enough to dig in, but warm enough to melt in your mouth.
Get in my belly!!!
