These taste GREAT! I made them a bit small and used 1/2 a mint - mostly because I purchased one bag while at the store one day not realizing I needed more. Next time I will use the whole one as I was able to on the last two dozen - not only more mint - but they look prettier. I did do one thing different - since I really like mint - and it also made up for the 1/2 mint on top - I put one cup mint chocolate chips and one reg. chips into the cookies - that way the mint wasn't only on the topping. I'm glad I did that!! I think too much thought has gone into swirling the chocolate from reviewers - just set the mint on the cookie - fresh out of the oven - give it a couple minutes - use a fork (or something) and swirl it. Just don't get why all these people talk about flipp'in it - waiting 1 minute - etc. Just swirl it - it turns out great - I thought it was going to be a big deal----NOT! UPDATE:
These are now a must at Christmas - not only for my family but for my co-workers! I've been putting in Andes Creme De Menthe Chips (I can only find them at Thanksgiving & Christmas time) for 2/3 the amount of reg.chips called for - brings out a great mint taste. Also - be sure to use parchment paper...for all your cookies - you can reuse it MANY times!!
