Mint Chocolate Cookies with Ice cream


1 package store bought chocolate chip cookie mix (dry ingredients),
available on baking aisle of market (recommended: Duncan Heinz or
Betty Crocker)- check label to see what the mix-in ingredients are,
i.e. butter and egg
Green vegetable food coloring
1 teaspoon mint extract
2 pints peppermint stick flavor or mint chocolate chip ice cream


Preheat oven according to the cookie mix package directions. Prepare
the cookie mix according to directions with the addition of a few
drops of green food coloring and the mint extract. Adjust deepness of
the color to your liking, 3 drops is enough to make it a medium color
green. Scoop heaping tablespoons of the cookie batter between 2 cookie
sheets, you should get about 2 dozen scoops. Bake cookies until just
lightly golden at the edges, remove and cool slightly. Serve with
peppermint stick or mint chocolate chip ice cream.

For a fun, tasty and minty ice cream sammy, place small scoops of ice
cream between 2 cookies. Push the ice cream to the edge and coat in
mini dark chocolate chips or chocolate shavings. Place in freezer
individually wrapped.
