Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies with a sweet combination of both chocolate chips and Mint M&M cookies are full of flavor and perfect any day of the year!

I have never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like so to try to kick things up a bit, I decided to add Mint M&Ms to our cookie mix to create a different take on a normal choco chip cookie.

If you enjoy a chocolate and mint combination then these Mint Cookies are something you definitely need to make!

CAN I USE MINT CHIPS IN LIEU OF THE MINT M&Ms?

Yes, you can definitely do that.  You will still get that lovely refreshing bite of mint and chocolate!

NORMALLY M&Ms MELT INTO THE COOKIE AND YOU LOSE THE COLOR, HOW DID DO YOU MAKE THE CANDIES SO BRIGHT?

After we pulled the Mint Choc Chip Cookies from the oven, we add more of the M&Ms on top of the cookies and then let the cookies cool.

COULD I USE THE ANDRES MINTS CHOPPED UP IN LIEU OF THE MINT M&Ms?

Yep, that would still create a lovely chocolate and mint combination!

COULD I MAKE MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE CREAM COOKIE SANDWICHES WITH THESE COOKIES?

That would be simply amazing wouldn’t it? Yes, all you have to do is soften up a pint of vanilla ice cream, scoop it out and smooth it on the bottom of one of the cookies, add another cookie to the top of the ice cream. 

You will then want to quickly wrap each of the cookie sandwiches in plastic wrap.  Freeze 2 to 3 hours or until firm.  Once they are firm, you can place them in a large freezer proof air tight container.  You could also store them individually wrapped in plastic bags.
