Mint Chocolate Delights

Lets just say my house smells so good from baking these.. My mom had made these over Christmas time. I finally decided to make them at home. My kids keep begging for one, even though they already had one. You can find the recipe on the back of the dark chocolate and mint morsels bag by Nestle. But here is the recipe too.

2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cups baking cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, soften
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 2/3 cups (10 oz pkg) Nestle Toll House dark chocolate and mint morsels

Preheat oven to 325* degrees
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by well- rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 11- 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 mins; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozens cookies.
