These cookies are fantastic, especially straight out of the oven. When they are warm and gooey, it tastes like you are eating a melted Girl Scout thin mint cookie. The mint-chocolate chips (that are swirled) that you can buy around the holidays always taste a bit artificial to me. But these chips taste smooth and creamy and have an intense mint flavor, just like an actual Andes Mint. Kyle doesn't like mint flavor which just meant more for me!
