Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I COMPLETELY cheated on this one. These are mint chocolate chip cookies that started out as a bag of sugar cookie dough mix from Betty Crocker. I get at least 10-15 emails a day from different companies and sites with recipes to try and this one showed up in my Betty Crocker email for a few days in a row. I decided to take a look at it and the reviews were actually good so I figured that I would try them. I already had everything on hand that was needed thanks to some random sale earlier in the year.

First off, these were really easy to make and were so good right out of the oven! They tasted just like a girl scout thin mint, just softer and chewier. I definitely plan to tuck this recipe away for when I have a mint chocolate chip craving. :-)
