The combination of mint and chocolate in these easy Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies is heavenly!
Life has been crazy the past few days. My Dad had to go in for emergency surgery Monday night, and again on Tuesday. He’s very sick with complications from diabetes. I won’t go in to the gory details, but all I ask is that you keep him in your prayers. It would mean a lot 🙂
As for these cookies, they are one of my favorites. I adore mint flavor and chocolate chip cookies, so the two combined is heaven to me. This recipe is SO easy. Another reason I love them so much. Give them a try, you’ll probably love them, too 🙂
