I am not sure if I have ever mentioned it before, but Mint Chocolate Chip isone of my all time favorite ice cream flavors. I have loved it ever since I was a little girl.
Now, if you were to take that ice cream and turn it into a cookie…you would have these delightful little green bites of goodness. They are crisp and cool and so so yummy. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day…if you need a green dessert idea.
