   Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Melt over hot (not boiling) water, 3/4 cup
   of the mint-chocolate chips; stir until smooth.  Remove from heat; cool to
   room temperature.  In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt;
   set aside.  In a large bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, sugar, and
   vanilla extract; beat until creamy.  Add melted chips and egg; beat well.
   Gradually blend in the flour mixture.  Stir in remaining 3/4 cup of
   mint-chocolate chips and nuts.  Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto
   ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake at 375 degrees F. for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow
   to stand 2 to 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely on wire
   racks.
