Are you as picky about your chocolate chip cookies as I am?
I love mine thick, tender and CHEWY - and especially when they are warm from the oven! This favorite combo of milk mint chip and dark chocolate chips is perfect for your Christmas cookie tray, but I tend to make them more frequently for St. Patrick's Day!
The only problem is, you have to plan for these when you are picking up your Christmas holiday baking supplies. The Nestle Mint & Dark Chocolate Chips that we prefer are only available at the end of the year. I learned this the hard way last year! I've tried making these with other mint & chocolate chips, but there is just something special about these Nestle chips!
Of course, I have to hide these wonderful chips very carefully - and then hope that I can remember where they are when it's time for baking!
The delicate chocolate glaze is delicious like warm hot fudge, and sets up just perfectly on these cookies after drizzling - hardening up just slightly on the top, but tender and perfect for topping these treats. You can use a simple chocolate glaze, or add just a touch of peppermint extract for something a little bit special.
