Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Good Monday Morning!! It's a cold one out there today! Hope you're managing to stay warm.
Thought I'd share a cookie recipe that is a favorite with my girls. I had to hide them in the freezer yesterday to stop the girls from eating them all!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter or margarine
1 ½ cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
12 oz. (350 g) mint chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar, eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in mint chocolate chips. Drop by tsp. full (or cookie scoop). onto a cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from cookie sheet. Cookies don’t look fully done after required time, but take them out or they will be too dry. Freeze well.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day!
