I couldn’t possibly spend two weeks baking and not make hubby something minty! Since I’m not making anything chocolate peanut butter the least I could do is make these minty fresh chocolate chip cookies for him.
If you haven’t bought the limited edition Nestle Toll House dark chocolate and mint morsels, I’d recommend you run right to the store to get some! They are quite tasty and made my house smell so fresh and minty.
On the back of the bag you’ll find this recipe for chocolate mint cookies. They turned out nice and soft just the way we like them!
