Our local newspaper had a cookie contest a while back. This was one of the recipes featured, and it caught my eye because I love mint flavor. My family likes these cookies as much as I do.

"My daughter's favorite! No way did it make dozen though. Mint chips were very hard to find, but clearly a must for this recipe. Stock up when you find them!"

"This recipe was easy and cookies provide great mint flavor. I think I messed up the recipe somewhere because the dough was too soft to roll in my hands after 2 hours. I also might not add the second batch of mint chips (just use the melted chips) next time. Other than my mistakes the cookies came out soft and had a great combination of mint and chocolate."
