I am a huge fan of the chocolate/mint combination which is why I love putting Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips in this recipe, but the chocolate cookie recipe is amazing no matter what you put in it!  I've used chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, etc., and they all turn out great!  This particular chocolate cookie recipe is my favorite because it uses melted chocolate instead of cocoa powder and I think it makes a huge difference in the taste of the cookies!
