Andes Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies

Are you ready for St. Patrick’s Day??  I always look forward to this holiday, as the foods are very comforting.  Tomorrow night I am planning on making the traditional feast of corned beef and cabbage for my family.  I remember eating this meal often as a child at my Grandmother’s house and I looked so forward to it!  What a treat that meal is; a variety of flavors!

Though I was REALLY unmotivated to put my apron on today, I had these minty chocolate bits calling my name.  Well… I put them on the counter so I could remind myself to actually MAKE something with them!  I thought they would be perfect for the holiday as well.  So when I finished baking the cookies, I thought… “It tastes… lightening-y!”  (quote from Ratatouille movie – for those not on the up and up of Disney movies) Really, these cookies are AMAZING.  Such a simple little recipe on the back of the bag.  I am loving these “back o’ the bag” recipes lately!  Either that or it’s just laziness on my part to actually look up recipes online or open a book.
