Hershey's Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

Jaylyn and I wanted to make some kind of cookie to take camping but we were low on regular chocolate chips so the usual chocolate chip cookies were out.  We DID however have several packages of Hershey's Mint Chocolate Chips we bought last fall to use for Chocolate Mint Fudge.  While trying to decide if those would tasted good in a regular chocolate chip cookie, we noticed the recipe on the back of the package for Double Chocolate Mint Cookies.  (of all the places to find a recipe!  lol )   We don't try new cookie recipes often, but since we needed to use these chips up - we gave it a whirl.  Jaylyn did most of the mixing and used the cookie scoop to put the dough on the cookie sheets.  They didn't take much time at all.

They are DELICIOUS!!!  Soft and moist, perfect amount of chocolate and mint.  Mmmmm!  We doubled the batch and ended up with 6 dozen cookies.

If you'd like to try this recipe & need the ingredient list before you so shopping, here it is:

Hershey's Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

2/3 C. butter or margarine, softened
1 C. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C. flour
1/2 C. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda 
1/4 tsp. salt
1 10 oz pkg of Hershey's Mint Chocolate Chips

Heat oven to 350.

Beat butter and sugar until creamy.  Add egg and vanilla; beat well.  Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt;  gradually add to butter mixture, beating well.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 8-9 minutes or just until set; do not overbake.  Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool completely.  About 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

Joy's Notes:   The dough seemed really soft so I added a couple of tablespoons more flour.  I could probably have left it out though.  I have a gas oven with convection so I lowered the temperature to 340 and baked for 8 minutes & they turned out nice and soft.  (after the first cookie sheet that we did at normal temps & 9 minutes - those came out crispy.  Still good, but crispy)
