Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

I stumbled upon a bag of Andes mint baking chips at the grocery store recently and I couldn’t resist buying them. My kids absolutely LOVE Andes mints and they were thrilled these cookies were this week’s school lunch treat. I loved that these mint chocolate chip cookies are buttery and crisp on the outside while still a bit gooey on the inside and filled with minty chocolate goodness. We all loved these cookies – especially my daughter.

How to Make Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl; mix until well combined.

In a separate large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until creamy and smooth, making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed, about 1-2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract then beat until well combined.

Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture until just combined. Add all but 3 tbsp of the Andes mint baking chips along with 1/4 cup of the dark chocolate chips to the batter; gently stir to combine.

Scoop spoonfuls (about 1 ½ tbsp) of the dough onto the baking sheet placing them 2 inches apart.

Place into the oven and bake for 7-9 minutes, or until set.

Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle a bit of the remaining Andes mint baking chips on top of each cookie as well as a couple of the remaining chocolate chips – don’t overload them but this will make the cookies look extra pretty. Allow them to sit for 5 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve with ice-cold milk and enjoy.

    My mama loved mint and chocolate and loce Los Andes chocolate, these cookies looks wonderful!

  2. It’s a tradition that we put a box of Andes Mints in each Christmas stocking, and several more on the Christmas morning table. So it isn’t a far leap to say my guys would love these! We will have to look for the Andes Mint chips!

  3. i got a bag of mint chips on sale after christmas and have yet to use them…for some reason, it seems weird to have mint desserts in march! couldn’t and wouldn’t pass up these cookies though.
