I really love chocolate chip mint ice cream (probably my favorite flavor) and some day on Pinterest I came across these fancy cookies that supposedly taste like chocolate chip mint ice cream. I checked out the recipe and here I have a the dumbed down/cheap/faster version which turned out delicious and I have brought them to parties since and everyone praises their yumminess! So I recommend them to any semi-homemade ladies/gentlemen who want to impress their bests.
- 1 pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
- 6 drops green food color
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of chocolate chips
- 1/2 bag (about 4oz) of M&M’S@reg Dark Mint
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl/your sweet kitchen aid mixer, mix the sugar cookie mix, butter, extract, and egg until soft dough forms.
Carefully add the food coloring, remember you can’t take it out, so I do one drop at a time until I get the color I like.
Now add the chocolate chips and the dark chocolate mint M&M’S@reg, DON’T over mix these in, because as they crack your green dough is likely to turn brown!
Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on cookie sheet
(Which I typically cover in tin foil and lightly spray with veggie oil because I hate stuck cookies and clean up 🙂
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until firmness you like.
Let cool slightly and SERVEEEE!
