Double Mint Chocolate Cookies

These Double Mint Chocolate Cookies are FULL of Andes mint pieces and mint Oreo pieces. They are so perfectly minty and chocolatey, it’s hard to not eat the entire batch right out of the oven!

The cookie itself is soft and chewy – my favorite! This a very similar recipe to the one used for my Triple Chocolate Cookie Cake. These cookies have mint though and it’s a serious party in your mouth.

I mean look at that picture below! All that deliciously melty mint chocolate – yum! Especially when eaten warm, the cookies just melt in your mouth. Seriously moan-worthy.

I made my cookies pretty big. I like big cookies. That way I get more. But you could totally make them smaller.

I’m actually a little torn on whether it’s better to have larger or smaller cookies. Here’s my thinking on that – if I make smaller cookies, I inevitably eat at least 2 at a time. One small cookie just isn’t enough. Then I feel like a fatty because I ate two cookies when I told myself I’d only eat one.

That seriously never happens.

But with bigger cookies, they’re bigger so you’re more likely to eat just one, right? Then, you feel less guilty because you only ate one like you said you would.

Yea I know. Who am I kidding? No matter what size they are I eat them until they’re gone. It’s a problem. But how can I not? Do you see that soft chocolatey center?

On another note, I feel like I’ve been kind of absent recently. I’ve been missing out on a lot of my normal link parties, haven’t been keeping up with my favorite bloggers and what they’re up to and I don’t feel like I’ve been as quick to respond to comments and questions. I hate that and it’s been bugging me, but know that there is a reason that I’ll hopefully be able to share next week. It’s been a bit of a crazy couple weeks but I think I’m finally getting it back together. And it’s definitely something I want to talk about, so more on that later.

Now go make cookies!

Double Mint Chocolate Cookies

Yield: 12-14 large cookies

Ingredients

3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup andes mints, chopped
3/4 cup mint oreos, chopped

Instructions

1. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
2. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
3. Add flour, cocoa and baking soda and mix until combined.
4. Stir in Andes Mint pieces and chopped Oreos . Dough will be thick and sticky.
5. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
7. Make balls about the size of golf balls (or smaller if you prefer, just remember to adjust the bake time). Flatten out a bit and place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges look firm but the center is still soft.
9. Cool for 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet, then finish cooling on a cooling rack

The colder the cookie dough, the less it will spread during baking. If your dough is pretty cold and you want larger cookies, I suggest flattening them out a bit before baking.
