Description

Rich chocolate cookies loaded with mint chocolate chips. The perfect holiday cookie!

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ cup All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ⅔ cups Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder
  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ⅓ cups Milk
  • 12 ounces, weight Mint Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and cocoa, and set aside. Beat the butter on medium-high until light and then add sugars, creaming well. Add the vanilla and beat until smooth. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, alternately with the milk in one batch, mixing well. Stir in the mint chips. Chill dough for at least 15 minutes. You can make the dough a few hours or 2 days before baking and it will be fine. Just wrap it up and keep in the fridge.

Scoop the dough into round tablespoon-sized balls and place onto prepared baking sheet, press down on the dough balls slightly, and bake for 14-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet, they will set up as they cool. Store in an air-tight container. They will stay fresh for a couple of days.

NO WAY! I found some mint chips at my local grocery store the other day and planned to make some chocolate cookies with them included today, using my brand-new oven. Now I have the perfect recipe. Thanks, I’ll let you know how they turn out.

I am not a baker, but these looked so good, I had to try . I made these with my daughter and her friend today. I did do a double take when I saw there was no eggs. I was out of vanilla, so I added a little more milk. I pressed down with a spoon like the recipe says. They turned out GREAT! They are very tasty and the girls loved them. I have tried many recipes for cookies that never turn out very good. For a person that doesn’t enjoy baking I have to say these are my best cookies ever!

Our Walmart didn’t have any green mints chips, so we used Andes peppermint chips. The recipe was awesome! I also used almond milk, since we allergic to cow milk. My cookies flattened out (I used a spoon; I don’t have a scoop) and I don’t really care, since they tasted so good. They are rich and perfect for the holidays. The only problem is that they’re being eaten too fast!

I had the exact opposite turnout… my cookies were extremely flat. They tasted great, almost exactly like the girl scout thin mint cookies. I used andes mints that i chopped since i couldnt find the mint chips.

My family LOVED these and ate them all right away. I used the seasonal nestle mint and chocolate chip mix 10 oz bag. My husband said that was the perfect amount of mint and I agree. The kids want me to use all mint chips next time. I wonder if the Guittard mint chips are less minty or it would be too much for us. Those by the way can be ordered online from King Arthur Flour for those looking.

I agree with Jillpickle on the consistency of the dough. My cookies never spread out either. Half my cookies were cooked without chilling the dough and half with chilling and there was no noticeable difference so in the future I would just skip that step. Overall a very yummy cookie! I have requests for another batch today :)
