Here’s another choice when you’re looking for cookies to put out for Santa–he’s sure to love mint and chocolate together! This recipe is adapted from Nestle Tollhouse, using their Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels, but you could use any combination of flavored pieces.

These keep great in a cookie jar, too.

  • 1 package (about 1 1/2 cups) chocolate & mint morsels
