chocolate mint cookies

Recipe by

These chocolate chips are a limited edition - available sporadically. I bought some a couple years ago and never used them until now. I used the recipe on the back of the bag and we loved the results. Using a small (1 tablespoon) cookie scoop, this batch made 5 dozen cookies. I started to throw the bag away before I realized that I might not be able to find the recipe again, so here it is! These are also called Winter chips. What I loved about these is that the mint is not overpowering - only half the chips are mint, the rest are dark chocolate.
