Guittard Polka Dot Cookies

To any of you that don't know - my favorite baking chocolate is Guittard. In Phoenix you can find it at Safeway, and here in Salt Lake I've seen it at Harmons and other "Associated Foods" stores. It is delicious and I love it. Occasionally we do a wholesale order from the company, so if any of you are interested - it is very inexpensive for a great chocolate. EVERYONE needs a year supply of chocolate on hand!

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups Guittard Green Mint Chips (the recipe is yummy with the mint chips, but if you make them with semisweet or milk chips you'll be eating crazy-good double chocolate chip cookies!)

Preheat oven to 350. In double boiler, melt 1 bag semisweet chips and butter. Set aside to cool. In a large bowl beat eggs, sugar and vanilla until light. Blend in melted chocolate and then dry ingredients. Stir in Mint chips and chill for 20 minutes. Bake 8-10 minutes; cookies will be soft in centers, but will harden as they cool. ENJOY!
