I had a bag of mint chocolate chips in my pantry for a while. I LOVE mint chocolate anything, it's definitely one of my favorite ice cream flavors. I actually scored big time because I found this particular bag at our local grocery outlet for $.79! I finally came up with this cookie idea and they turned out SO GOOD. They are one of the most addicting cookies I've ever had! I'm now wishing I had bought more than just the one bag...
Chocolate Mint Chip Pudding Cookies
2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 package (3.4oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 package chocolate mint chips
Cream butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in a stand mixer. Add in dry chocolate pudding mix until well blended. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time beating well with each addition. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour and baking soda.
Gradually add flour mixture a little at a time until well blended. Stir in chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes (10 was perfect for my electric oven). Cool on wire racks.
