Mint Chocolate Delights

It is rainy and snowy and sleety and slushy here today so it’s the perfect day to make cookies and stay inside.  I went to Target a few days ago and found these Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate and Mint Limited Edition Morsels on clearance for $1.28 a bag, regularly $2.59 a bag so I grabbed 5 bags and started to walk away but then thought better of it and went back and grabbed 5 more bags.  This is one of the recipes on the back of the bag, there is also one for brownies which I’m sure will show up here sooner or later, probably sooner.  I’ll tell you this, they certainly live up to their name as they are truly delightful!

2 cups flour

2/3 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

2/3 cup sugar

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 2/3 cups (10 package) Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels

1  Preheat oven to 325.

2  Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl.  Beat butter, sugars and vanilla until creamy.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in morsels.  Use cookie scoop or generous tablespoon, drop onto ungreased cookie sheets.

3  Bake for 11 – 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set.  Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen
