Ingredients for Recipe

For the wet ingredients, you’re going to need…
  • Butter
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Mint Extract – If this seems like a lot of mint, you can substitute some of this out with vanilla extract. Remember, a little can go a long way!
The dry ingredients, meanwhile, are…
  • Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
You’ll also need the following…
  • Green Food Coloring – This is optional. We like to add a couple drops to get that pale mint green color.
  • Dark Chocolate and Mint Chips – If you can find a bag of pre-mixed chocolate and mint chips, feel free to use them- that’s what we used to do. If you can’t, just use a blend of these Andes mint chips and your favorite chocolate chips.

How to make Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Making these mint cookies is actually fairly simple. Here’s all you need to do:
  1. Cream together wet ingredients one-by-one, starting with the butter and sugar.
  2. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients before adding food coloring and chocolate and mint chips. Portion tablespoon-sized mounds of dough out onto lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake cookies in a 375 degree oven for 12-14 minutes. Let cool before serving.

Dry cookie ingredients in a bowl

We’ll first prep our wet and dry ingredients separately. In one bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside. In another, start by creaming together the butter and sugar.

Crack in your eggs to the butter-sugar mix and beat them in.

Add your mint extract as well before you start gradually mixing in your dry ingredients.

Dry ingredients add to wet

Keep adding the dry mix in bit-by-bit until you have a good cookie dough. If adding, put a few drops of green food coloring in now.

Now we can start adding the mix-ins to our mint chocolate chip cookies. Start with the Andes mint chips.

Next, add in your chocolate chips.

Once those are mixed in, your dough is ready! Portion the dough out into 1-inch/tablespoon-sized balls and space them out on a lined baking sheet.

All that’s left is to bake! Warm the oven up to 375 degrees before tossing the sheet with the mint cookies in. It should take about 12-14 minutes for the cookies to bake through.
