    I changed this recipe a little, I used 1 cup of those new peppermint chips available in the baking aisle and 1.5 cups of milk choc chips in place of the 2 c semi-sweet and .5 cup of soft peppermint candy, all other ingredients remain the same. The cookies are fabulous and I will probably have to make more than one batch! Didn't run at all!  -  13 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I added 1/2 c cocoa and used a bag of semi-sweet chips and a bag of Andes baking pieces. I baked them for 9 minutes and let them sit on the pan for 4 minutes then cooled on racks. The cookies turned out delicious and didn't last long at all!  -  06 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
