St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. I don’t do much in the way of decorating for St. Patrick’s Day, because sometimes Easter is so soon after that I don’t want to bother with getting everything out just to put it away. Any of you like that?

Recipe for soft and chewy mint chocolate chip cookies. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day

While I don’t have many decorations, I do love to make fun food for St. Patrick’s Day! And since I am a huge fan of mint chocolate, and mint is usually green, I’m all about finding ways to add it to our St. Patty’s menu. These Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies taste just as good without the green food coloring, but it sure makes them fun!

I adapted this recipe from a wonderful cookie recipe I got from a friend years ago. It called for Andes mint bits. They are wonderful as well! But when I saw these semi sweet mint chips at Walmart, they practically jumped into my cart! You might be wondering why there isn’t any peppermint extract in the dough. I thought about adding it, but I didn’t, and I think they are plenty minty just the way they are!
