"BOTW" Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

With St. Patrick's Day on the horizon, searching the web for all things green, I came across these Mint Chocolate Chip cookies and just had to share.  Wouldn't they be great for a school party?  Or if a birthday falls on or near St. Patrick's Day?  Mint and chocolate.....YUM!
