Andes Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies + Weekly Dinner Menu.

Our friends, Jen and Joe, came over Friday night to grill out and Jen brought these cookies as an after dinner treat. They were a hit! I ate two that night even though I was stuffed and another one for breakfast yesterday morning. She said they were super easy, too, and the only ingredient you'll probably have to go out and buy are the Andes mints! Enjoy and share with your friends/co-workers because this recipe makes a lot!
