Sometimes, combining two good things results in a great thing. A fantastic illustration of this idea can be found in this recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies.

These fat, cakey, filled sandwich cookies take their color and taste inspiration from a favorite ice cream flavor, with extremely agreeable results. The refreshing minty flavor of the cookies pairs perfectly with a rich, thick chocolate filling, making them a crowd-pleasing dessert. Though optional, a few drops of green food coloring really bring the ice cream association full circle, making for a nostalgic and novel sandwich cookie treat.
