Dark Chocolate and Mint Chip cookies :)

Thinking about a last minute cookie recipe to make for Santa? Forget someone to give a gift to? How about making these amazing dark chocolate and mint chip cookies? I just made 4 dozen of these cookies and they are amazing. To me, they taste just like thin mint cookies from the Girl Scouts. Without further delay, here is the recipe!

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cups unsweetened baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 2/3 cups (10-oz package) Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels

Heat oven to 325*F

Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by well-rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

For this recipe I liked my baking sheet with tin foil to avoid sticking and a mess. These are delish! You can buy the morsels at Target but hurry! I believe they are a limited holiday edition. If you can't find them, try substituting crushed Andies mints.
