mint chocolate delight cookies

I made a half batch of these for St. Patrick's Day.  I wish I made the whole batch because two days later and they are all gone.  They are rich, chewy, chocolaty and have just the right amount of mint.  The mint taste does not over power the cookie.  They reminded me a bit of a chewy Thin Mint girl scout cookie.  Yum!
