Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe! I am excited about this one ya’ll. Since I can remember, mint chocolate chip ice cream has been on my favorite foods of all time list. These cookies taste like the ice cream but in cookie form. So good! Minty, refreshing with chunks of Andes mint and milk chocolate.
This recipe was inspired by Friday Cake Night. I can’t take all the credit for this one unfortunately. The cookies are chewy and so delicious. I made a huge batch and sent them to work with my husband after eating an embarrassing number of them myself. I am usually good around treats and can be happy with one but anything minty I got bonkers over and have zero self control. Did you catch the Andes Mint Milkshake recipe from last week? Same deal. No self control.
These Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are really simple to make. Mix a bowl with dry ingredients, mix another bowl with wet ingredients. Add the bowls together and then hand mix in the food coloring and chocolate chunks. One trick I have for cookie dough to bake well is to let it sit in the fridge for a little bit before baking. This helps the cookies stay nice and plump because they do not spread as much. I noticed these cookies already spread more than others so make sure to get that cookie dough slightly chilled.
I really love these cookies for holidays. Christmas and St Patrick’s Day would be perfect! Also, just bake some for a fun after school treat for the kids. A flavor that is familiar but still different in a cookie. The kids really loved them. Just try not to eat the whole batch before the kiddos get home. I think that was a message to myself more than anything. Haha.
