Celebrate St. Patrick’s day or any day with these yummy triple chocolate mint cookies.
So when my kids were young and living at home I pretty much ignored St. Patrick’s Day. Call me a bad mother if you must. Even though I have Irish blood in me, it just wasn’t my thing. Some years I didn’t even wear green on St. Patrick’s Day. I’m a bit of a rebel! But living in the blogging world that I do, I’m not sure I could call myself a real blogger if I didn’t at least post a couple of recipes in honor of the holiday.
I decided that if I was going to add green food coloring into something it needed to be mint and it needed to be a cookie.
These triple chocolate mint cookies are full of mint and chocolate goodness using vanilla chips, milk chocolate chips and mint chips in addition to some mint extract.
They are a yummy, moist, chewy cookie which is just the way I like them.
Of course the only way to enjoy a cookie at our house is with a glass of milk. Now if you are really in the spirit of the holiday you could add some green food coloring to your milk too but I prefer mine white.
If you eat a green cookie on St. Patrick’s Day does that count as wearing something green, to avoid being pinched?? I hope so! The best part is when you get a vanilla chip, milk chocolate chip and a mint chip all in one bite!
Bring on the green!

- 1/2 tsp salt

- Add in all dry ingredients to creamed mixture.

- Don't overbake the cookies, I actually like them a little under cooked. They don't get as brown around the edges either.
