Chunky Peppermint Fudge Dream Cookies

3/4 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1/2 c. shortening
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, melted, cooled
2 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 pkg. (4.67 oz each) foil-wrapped rectangular creme de menthe thin chocolate mints, unwrapped, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chunks

Heat oven to 350*. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in melted baking chocolate. On low speed, beat in flour and baking soda until well blended. Reserve 1 c. of the chopped mints. Stir remaining mints and the chocolate chunks into dough. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 2 inches apart. Bake 11-15 minutes or until centers of cookies no longer look moist. Immediately sprinkle with reserved mints. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
