Chocolate Mint Cookies with Dark Chocolate Mint Chips

If you read the title of this post and thought to yourself “that sounds really tasty” let me assure you that you are correct. They really are tasty !

The original recipe didn’t call for peppermint extract in the dough but I decided since I love mint it would be perfect. The chips I used were a limited edition from Nestle. If you see these delicious dark chocolate and mint chips I highly recommend picking up a bag. I only wish I would have bought more than one. I went to the store today and they didn’t have any left….boo.

Honestly the store seemed to be sold out of almost everything. I went to buy a bag of Christmas themed M&M’s and they were sold out of those too. I asked the guy who works at the store and he says “oh yeah those flew off the shelf this year.” It makes me wonder who are all these people buying M&M’s and what do they need them for? I only ask because it annoys me they bought all of them before I got a bag.

Well ladies and gentleman I apologize for this short post but I have a lot of Christmas baking to do and it’s not going to get done unless I get my lazy butt into the kitchen and make it.

Just wanted to add a tip :o) When the mint chocolate chips cant be found in the store, you can add 1/4 -1/2 tsp of peppermint extract (depending on how strong you like the flavor) to a bag of dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips, stir well and let sit for at least 24 hours. I usually give it a week or so. That little tip came from Nestles :o) They know its a problem keeping the mint chocolate chips in the stores and only have them in the stores, or at least at the time that I contacted them a few years back, at the holiday time.
