Chewy Chocolate Mint Cookies


  • 1 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup dutch processed cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate mint chips or pieces plus a little for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla, mix until combined.
  4. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
  5. Slowly add flour mixture blending well.
  6. Mix in chocolate mint pieces by hand.
  7. Drop by tablespoon on ungreased cookie sheet.
  8. Place several chocolate mint pieces on top of cookie.
  9. Bake 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Do not overbake.
  10. Let cool on cookie sheet approx 4 minutes before removing to cooling rack.

Cream together the softened butter and sugar.

Add egg and vanilla and mix until combined.

In medium bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.

I am usually not a fan of more specialty ingredients but it really makes the difference in these cookies.

Add the chocolate mint pieces and combine by hand. The batter will be very fudgy and thick.

Bake for 8 minutes in a 350 degree oven. I rotate by placing the sheet on the bottom rack for 4 minutes then move to the top rack for 4 minutes for even cooking.

Remove from oven and let cool about 4 minutes before removing from pan to a cooling rack. They are so chewy if you remove them right away they will tear.

These are the cookies dreams are made of!
