Recipe: Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

When I saw Hershey's mint chocolate chips at the grocery store, I knew they had to be mine. Then I promptly forgot about them. Until last weekend, when I went in search of a way to use them. I didn't have to go far - Hershey's own website offered up a recipe for Double Chocolate Mint Cookies.

I always assume the time to prepare a recipe is way off, but these little babies really did take only about 15 minutes to pull together, and we were tucking into glorious gooey cookies in under 30 minutes start to finish including a clean kitchen! The only thing I tweaked was using white wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. So they're totally healthy, right?

They are so simple, but they really were the business. I loved that the center of the cookies remained gooey even days later. And they were delightfully minty and chocolaty. Best of all, if you make them as small as the recipe recommends, they are a measly 2 weight watchers points. At that rate, I could live on an all cookie diet. In fact, I kind of did eating up to three of these bad boys a day. Oh so good!

If I'd had vanilla ice cream around I would have made little ice cream sandwiches. I'm dying just thinking about it.
