I wonder why some ice cream companies dye their mint ice cream green and other companies make white mint ice cream.  Personally, I don’t think the color affects the flavor–I love a few scoops of white mint ice cream from Breyer’s as much as I love a green mint Klondike bar.   This month, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to make green mint chocolate chip cookie bars for St. Patrick’s Day.

Ingredients:

  • One 15-oz. white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. mint extract
  • 11 drops green food coloring
  • 1 drop yellow food coloring
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Coat a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray.  Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cake mix, oil, and eggs.  Add food coloring and mix until the color is consistent.
  • Add mint extract and chocolate chips.  Stir to integrate.
  • Spread cookie dough into prepared pan.  Optionally, you can press an additional 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the dough.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20-22 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
  • Eat and enjoy!
