Mint Chocolate Treasures

Happy March! I'm not sure about your neck of the woods, but here in Alabama, everything is starting to bloom. As my little guy points out every time we see a bud, "It's a sign that spring is near!" This was no-doubt learned in pre-school, but he's so right - spring is just around the corner! And now that we're in a climate that gives us freezing temperatures and even snow, I appreciate spring so much more.

I got my spring baking on this past weekend, and tweaked a recipe for regular Chocolate Treasures, turning them into Mint Chocolate Treasures. The mint to me just screams spring, and I promise these will put a little pep in your step.

Mint Chocolate Treasures

2 cups (one 12 oz. bag) NestléⓇ TollhouseⓇ Semi-Sweet Morsels
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 stick butter
1 tsp. peppermint extract
1 cup flour
1 cup NestléⓇ TollhouseⓇ Dark Chocolate Morsels

Melt 12 oz. bag of semisweet chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat, add peppermint extract and flour. Stir to combine, then add dark chocolate chips. Drop onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for three minutes before removing to rack.

The best part about these cookies (besides the ooey gooey chocolaty chewiness) is the fact that they are a cinch to make, and take minimal dishes and utensils - in fact, the entire recipe is done in the same saucepan! Genius!

For further time saving hacks, I always stock up on my NestléⓇ TollhouseⓇ Morsels at Walmart since I can do double duty shopping at the same time (this trip I also purchased a bike lock, dishwasher detergent, and nail polish - winning!). Happy spring baking!
