I absolutely was not going to make any more sugary treats for a while. Then Alexander had a car wash/bake sale fundraiser to do with the scouts and every boy was supposed to donate a couple dozen cookies. I would have had him help me with them, but he was gone at a marching band fundraiser selling scones. I didn't want to go to the store so I looked around at the ingredients I had on hand. Some time ago, these Guittard Mint Chips were on sale and I bought them without knowing what I'd do with them. I looked at the recipe on the back of the bag and it's pretty easy, so Sabrina and I made them.
They turned out pretty good--like little brownie bites with mint bursts.
1 (12-oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/8 t. salt
3 large eggs
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. vanilla
1 (12-oz.) pkg. Guittard Green Mint Chips
Preheat oven to 350º. In top of double boiler over low heat, melt semi-sweet chips and butter, stirring constantly until smooth. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla until light. Blend in melted chocolate, then dry ingredients. Stir in green mint chips and chill for 10-15 minutes or until stiff.
Drop chilled dough by well-round teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes, cookies will be soft in centers but will harden as they cool.
