Chocolate Mint Cookies

Of all my cookie recipes, these are my family's favorites. When they're given a choice between them and store-bought mint cookies, these win hands down.

Directions

  • In a small heavy saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar and water; cook over low heat until butter is melted. Remove from the heat; stir in chips until melted.
