Mint Chocoloate Cookies

I don't buy into the whole just because it's mint flavored it needs to be green business. In fact, I find most artificially colored green food very unappetizing. With that being said, these cookies are deliciously mint flavored without being green. One bite is like Christmas morning. Totally amazing recipe, pin it, save it, print it, just make it! ;)

  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp of peppermint extract
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 3/4 cup of mint chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a kitchen aid beat together the butter and sugar, once smooth, add in the eggs and peppermint extract.

3. Add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt until a thick dough is formed. Mix in the chocolate chips.

4. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on baking sheet. Press each ball down slightly to form a disc. Bake for approx 9 mins. Make sure you don't over bake, cookies should be soft in the middle. Makes about 24 cookies.

These cookies taste great right out of the freezer! :)
