Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies

So I have 2 finals done and 1 to go and I was in a serious need of a break.  This recipe looked so good that i couldn't pass up the opportunity to make these.  Who doesn't love mint and chocolate in the same bite!?  The recipe is super easy and they are very delicious!  They do not look like they have a lot of Andes Mints in them but they really have a minty flavor.  I have a lot of holiday baking to come so check back over the next few days to see more cookies and recipes!  

This is what my kitchen looks like right now...7lbs of butter and everything else will soon be gone!
