Chocolate Mint Grinch Cookies

My family always makes the classic Toll House chocolate chip cookies around the holidays.  I love them!  They’re the seemingly universally accepted chocolate chip cookie.

However, I was looking to turn up the creativity a few notches.  One of my favorite flavor combinations for sweets is chocolate and mint, so I figured I’d work that into these cookies for the holidays.

I didn’t want to call them Mint Chocolate Toll House Chocolate Chip & Andes Mints Cookies so I posted a challenge to Facebook to come up with a creative name that hopefully wasn’t too many syllables.  The winner went to Mr. Rob Walker who suggested simply calling them “Grinches”.  It’s fitting, one syllable, and adds to the holiday theme.  Slam dunk!
