Mint Chocolate Cookies

Mint Chocolate Cookies

My hubby loves Andes mints and I was so excited when I saw Crafty c0rn3r's Mint Chocolate Cookies  on Pinterest. I rarely make cookies and I am not very good at making them but I gave it a try and they were a hit! There is room for me to improve of course…One thing I did wrong was that I mixed in the mint chips too soon instead of folding them in at last. So please be careful. Also, the cookies fell flat and turned out thinner than I would have liked so I will skip flattening the dough balls before baking next time. She used regular Andes mints and had her kids unwrap them and then chopped them. I was lucky and I got a bag of baking Andes mint chips at walmart.  Other than that, I followed crafty c0rn3r’s easy recipe! DELICIOUSLY MINTY!


2 3/4 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup unsalted butter (at room temperature)

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tsp mint extract

20 drops green food coloring

1 bag (10 oz) Andes baking mint chips


Preheat oven 375 degrees.

Sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt) together and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and mint extract.

Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Add green food coloring and mix until even colored.

Lastly, fold in the Andes mint chips.

Use a cookie scoop or roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls using a spoon or your hands, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let stand on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before moving them to wire racks to cool.
