Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies
Melt over hot (not boiling) water, 3/4 cup of the mint-chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, sugar, and vanilla extract; beat until creamy. Add melted chocolate and egg; beat well.
Gradually blend in the flour mixture. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup of mint-chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375ºF for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to stand 2 to 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely on wire racks.
