I just love mint and peppermint especially in baked goods. It adds a delicious coolness to the recipe that I really enjoy. These wonderful Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies have just the right taste–and they are so easy to make. You can have a batch of these in your oven in about 8-10 minutes and eating these delicious treats within 20-30 minutes! It’s a great cookie to whip up for holiday parties, but you can usually get the creme de menthe baking chips all year round now so these can be made any time.

These are just some of the recipes posted. I highly recommend you check out their website. They have some great looking stuff.

When I initially posted this recipe in November 2012, I made Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies for a school fundraiser along with my Toffee Almond Sandies and Laura Bush’s Cowboy Cookies. They were a big hit as they got auctioned off for a silent auction. I recently remade this recipe (June 2015) in order to refresh the pictures, since the first were taken with an old iPhone 3 and weren’t quite as clear as I would have liked. Every time we make these cookies people enjoy them. I hope you do to.
