Week 29 ~ Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies

My almost 9 year old (by almost I mean just a few days away) loves mint chocolate chip ice cream.  For her birthday cookie I decided to do a double chocolate mint chip cookie using Andes mints.  I have really been liking using chopped chocolate instead of regular chips recently.  Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a chocolate chip, but there is something about the irregularity of chopped pieces that’s sort of exciting.  I know, I am really living on the edge over here.  I like calculated risks! Anyway, if you like mint you will love these!  I actually stuck some mint chocolate chip ice cream in between two and made an ice cream sandwich, so many possibilities!!
