Mint Chocolate Cookie

I had an amazing cookie today. It was a mint chip chocolate cookie. Basically a chocolate cookie with mint chips instead of white chocolate chips. Sooo good! It tasted like the Andes version of a cookie. I couldn't find a recipe online that was exactly like what I ate so here is the closest one and I just changed the white chocolate chips to mint chips. (Oh, and in the picture above, just try to envision those as being GREEN). :) Here goes:

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 2/3 cups mint chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the mint chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are set. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
