I've made these twice this week. The first, exactly like the recipe, they were good, but not unbelievably good. They spread out a lot for me, and I could have used more mint. The 2nd... perfect. I melted the butter before adding the sugar and used bread flour. I added a 1/2 cup of crushed candy canes (5 canes). I also didn't grease the baking sheets. As several others recommended I only baked for 9 minutes. The final result is absolutely delicious! And more festive with the candy cane pieces.

We made this recipe and added broken pieces of candy canes for the holidays. They were a hit!

reduce cooking time by a few minutes and they stay soft and chewy and great tasting for days, (but they didn't last days around our house)

This were soooo good!! I used milk chocolate chips because that's what I had and they turned out great. The only thing I might change would be to add a little bit more flour to make them a little softer when they cool. Everyone at the office loved them!!

A tasty chocolate-chocolate cookie. They do become quite crisp when they have cooled, so if you like a softer cookie, eat them right away.

These are very tasty little morsels, I feel that there wasn't quite enough mint flavour but very good all the same, the secret to keeping them soft and delicious is to slightly underbake them.

I made these cookies & they are so good! My whole family liked them. I followed the recipe but cut the baking time as suggested in other reviews (I baked them for 9 minutes). They turned out great and are still soft the next day.

Every time I make these for my a cappella group they're all gone in less than half an hour. Soft, chewy, delicious and really easy to make - though I did take another reviewer's advice and added crushed candy cane. Love it so much!!
