Answer by professional source
I think that the cookies will be edible and unaffected in terms of their taste, but they will turn green in color.

    Food color will simply add the color you want and it doesn’t change the flavor in any way. Good idea!

    Does it have to be peanut butter cookies? Here’s a great recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip cookies for St. Patrick’s day that are awesome!>> makes about 36 cookies, so you may want to make a couple batches for the class so they get more than just 1 small cookie ;)

    1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
    6 to 8 drops green food color
    1 egg
    1 cup creme de menthe baking chips (the Andie’s mint candies are the best)
    1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks

    1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, extract, food color and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in creme de menthe baking chips and chocolate chunks.

    2. 2 Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

    3. 3 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

    Expert Tips:

    Drizzle cooled cookies with melted chocolate.

    For even baking, make sure cookies are of the same shape and size.
