Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

This are incredible.  They are made with a sugar cookie dough, but are a chocolate chip cookie.  And the mint is just right.  This is a cookie I will now make many times over!  Love it!

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz)  sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
6 to 8 drops green food color
1 egg
1 cup creme de menthe baking chips (Andes)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks (I just used plain old semisweet chocolate chips)

1. Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, extract, food color and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in creme de menthe baking chips and chocolate chunks.
2. Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature
