Amazing Chocolate Mint Cookies

Welcome to my new blog!

My favorite part of cooking is baking. Especially cookies. I love cookies because:
1-there are so many yummy varieties,
2-they are decadent warm from the oven,
3-they can be eaten without dirtying any dishes, and
4-because they freeze well so I can hide the leftovers in the freezer instead of having them sitting on the counter (like an entire Bundt cake for example.) Who can deal with that kind of temptation? Not me I tell you.
Anyway, I made a bunch of these chocolate cookies for a family get-together and thought I would share the recipe with you. They really are amazing, especially if you love chocolate and mint like I do!
Amazing Chocolate Mint Cookies
1 cup butter, soft
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour (more or less depending on the size of your eggs)
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups mint chips (I use Guittard brand because I think they are sinfully yummy!)

Cream butter, margarine, and sugars till fluffy, beat in eggs and vanilla. Then stir in all the dry ingredients. Stir in the mint chips. Sample some of the mint chips (optional but recommended.) Drop by tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. (I use Pam.) Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Let sit on pan for 1 minute, then remove to cooling racks.


-As a variation, you can use 1 cup of mint chips and 1 cup of chocolate chips. I prefer all mint! 🙂


  1. I have some Guittard Mint Chips in my freezer right now and I had no idea what I was going to make with them. These cookies sound perfect.

  2. Thanks so much, Kara! Looking forward to making them tonight : )

  3. This looks delicious and I’d love to make these…but I am confused about the 21 cups of mint chips. I’m assuming that’s a misprint. Also, in the directions you say semi-sweet AND mint chips. Do you add both? Thanks!

    • Britt,
      Yikes! How did I manage to make 2 mistakes? Musta been a crazy day or something. I’ve fixed the recipe!
