Starting today, I am sharing some of my favorite recipes for St. Patrick’s Day! We are Irish, so this is a special holiday for us and we go all out. This is one of my favorite holidays!
This recipe is super easy to make. You can easily use store bought cookie dough or a brownie mix, but I like to make it from scratch, I’ve included a tasty brownie recipe for you to try. I like to make it in a cookie pan that is specifically made for making those giant cookies you see at the mall. If you don’t want to go all out, just use brownies in a 9×13 pan or bake individual cookies…but the presentation of the giant cookie is awesome.
St Paddy’s Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pizza
2 cups sugar

1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup (6 oz) semisweet chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; beat until smooth. Gently mix in chocolate chips. Pour into a greased cookie pan or a 13 x 9 in. baking pan. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
