And if you're looking for a fun twist make sure you try adding chocolate chips!These chocolate andes mint cookies are a cinch to make, and while you may have already been sold on the peppermint chip cookies I think you would be wise to give these puppies a try.
They totally remind me of those famous Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, but as a soft cookie with mint chips instead of that chocolate dipped cookie.

You know what would really be good? Now that I’m thinking about it, and of course all of the cookies are already gone which means I’ll have to make a whole new batch, which is not something I’m complaining about! Anyway, it would be really good to bake these for a minute extra so they aren’t burned but they are a little extra crisp and then dip them in hot cocoa! Oh, what?! Booyah!

Our oldest daughter and Cade would especially be all over that. They both love cocoa and toast. As in actually dipping the toast in the hot cocoa. I do not like it. I love an oreo dipped in milk, but toast? Gross. Tell me, are you into dipping things?
