Chocolate chip cookies made special with the flavor of peppermint and three kinds of nuts. Yum! I baked these for church and they were grabbed and gone fast! Great for Christmas cookie tray.

Wow, chocolate chip cookies get a holiday makeover in this recipe. Sweet and crunchy, these chocolate chip cookies have everything you want in a cookie. Using Andes creme de menthe chips and peppermint oil amps up the minty flavor. They taste like the holidays! Try to eat these while they're still warm ... so good!
