Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found these on the Betty Crocker website and we decided to try them this Holiday Season.  I'm sure glad we did because they are SUPER EASY and SUPER DELICIOUS!!  If you like the Mint Chocolate flavor combination- you will love these. Enjoy!!

1 pouch Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix (1 lb 1.5 oz)
1/2 cup butter or margarine (I tried each one and liked the way the margarine ones turned out better- just my opinion)
1/4- 1/2 tsp mint extract (in the seasoning isle- next to the vanilla, etc.)
6-8 drops green food coloring
1 egg
1 cup creme de menthe baking chips (next to the chocolate chips)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350.  Combine Cookie mix, butter/margarine, extract, food coloring an egg until soft dough forms.  Stir in chips.  Cook for 8-10 min.
