Like most of us – I adore chocolate chip cookies. In fact, they might be my favorite cookie of all time.
The comforting combination of vanilla, butter and chocolate is pure bliss in a baked format. Not to mention there’s nothing quite like the smell of chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven.
Seriously – this is true Americana.
During the holidays, I shared a trick for making your average CCC a little more festive: substitute the chips for chopped pieces of Andes candies.
This trick also proved useful during Saint Patrick’s day and is, overall, just an easy way to add a fun twist to this American cookie classic.
The freshness of the Andes mints actually lighten up the cookie and provides for a more complex flavor profile.
Don’t care for mint? The vanilla base to these cookies is just a canvas waiting to be painted!
