Nestle Dark Chocolate & mint chips!!!.. Y*U*M*!! when I saw these I just HAD to turn them into a cookie….. I took a favorite recipe of mine & tweaked it a bit.. this is what I came up with…
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
- 1 bag Dark Chocolate & mint chips
they looked good, but I was hoping that a bit more of the green mint chips would show through…. they looked a little boring.. so I melted a chocolate bar & drizzled melted chocolate over the cookies then put on my frigid porch for a few minutes.
VOILA! honestly…. it may surprise you to learn that I am not a cookie lover. I would happily take cheese a ( I LOVE cheese) any day of the week.. but these cookies… they are OUT OF CONTROL!!!! move over Girl Scout thin mints.. these cookies are the BOMB!!.. If you stumble across these chips in your travels, I urge you to try this recipe… and if you can’t find them and would like to make them.. let me know,, I’ll happily send you a bag ;).
