Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

     Hello!  According to the McCormick ad I got this recipe from, these cookies are "the best thing to happen to chocolate chunk cookies since milk".  And they're right - these are absolutely delicious!  The cookies are soft and chewy with just a hint of mint flavoring.  Easy to make and even easier to eat... in fact, it's hard to eat just 1!  I made these for the first time on a day when we were having our tub regrouted and offered some to Joe, the regrouter.  I told him him this was a new recipe and that if he liked them he was welcome to help himself to as many as he'd like.  During the day I noticed he came back several times for samples, guess he liked them!
