This is another treat for St. Patrick’s Day.  These cookies tasted just like mint chocolate chip ice cream.  They also look like mint chocolate ice cream when you scoop them on the cookie sheet.  
This is a really easy and quick recipe.  They are made from a bag of sugar cookie mix!  Now, I don’t usually bake with cookie mix.  I actually never even knew cookie mix existed until I went to the grocery store by myself for the first time in college.  Growing up we always made cookies from scratch.  We used cake mix, but never cookie mix.  
The cookie mix is a great shortcut.  They take about 45 minutes from start to finish.  You can’t beat that!  You could always use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and add some mint extract, green food coloring and mint chocolate chips.   Either way, they taste great!
