These cookies are so good! I, too, was having problems finding the mint chocolate morsels so I called Nestle to find out why. I was told that the mint chocolate morsels were discontinued due to lack of demand for them. The Nestle customer rep did email me the instructions on how to make my own mint morsels. The following are the directions that Nestle provided. The directions are also available on the website "Very Best Baking". To create your own mint morsels using Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels use the following recipe: 1. Place 2 cups (12-ounce pkg) Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate morsels in a medium, heavy-duty plastic bag or airtight container. Add 1/4 teaspoon of pure peppermint extract; seal the bag or cover the container. Shake to coat. Store for 24 hours to allow sufficient time for the morsels to absorb the peppermint extract. The mint flavored morsels can be added directly to your recipe or melted according to morsel package directions. 2. If you don't have 24 hours to wait, Nestle recommends adding 1/2 teaspoon pure peppermint extract and follow the steps above; however, instead of waiting 24 hours you can use the morsels immediately in your recipe. 3. If you don't have 24 hours to wait and would like to melt the mint morsels try the following: Melt the semi-sweet chocolate morsels according to the package directions. For 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate morsels, stir in 1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract; for 2 cups, stir in 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract. Hope this information helps so you can continue to enjoy these delicious cookies.
