Mint Oreo and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mint Oreo and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Merry Christmas lovelies! I hope Santa was very good to everyone of you.

I know I have been more than spoiled this Christmas! While dinner is cooking and the pups are all sleeping in front of the fireplace, I wanted to send out a little post I had the pleasure of working on this week.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of mint anything! I’m not a member of the thin mint fan club. I dislike candy canes. However, I had a to DIE for mint chocolate chip cookie (secretly snuk to me, I swear!) and ever since I had been craving mint chocolate chip cookies! Now, there are a few recipes out there but laborious in construction. Truthfully, I didn’t want to peel wrappers off Andes Mints (although they are delicious) and I’m not a fan of a green colored cookie! {Yikes!} 

Then I ran across Mint Oreo Cookies at the grocery store and it hit me! Who doesn’t love Oreos?

I decided I needed to come up with my own version! Easy right? WRONG! I think I have consumed my body weight in cookies. I’ve probably made over 500 cookies trying to perfect this recipe.

However, I think I finally managed to construct the best best, chewy, gooey, and yummy cookie! These cookies are the perfect blend of sweet chocolaty goodness and minty greatness!
