Chocolate mint chip cookies are the best chewy and fudgy chocolate cookies packed full of green mint chips throughout!
Pin these Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies for later!
I decided to turn my favorite chocolate cookies into chocolate mint chip cookies, because after doing them with chocolate chips, and with peanut butter cups, why wouldn’t I try a mint version?
If you are a fan of chocolate and mint together you will love these cookies! They’re the perfect rich and fudgey chocolatey cookie stuffed full of mint chips, for little bites of mint flavor throughout.
These cookies are amazing year round, but they’re extra fun for a St. Patrick’s Day themed treat with the green chips, or great for Christmas time because mint is so popular that time of year.
Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick, softened)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups mint chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream together the butter and sugars in a large bowl for about 2 minutes, until light and creamy.
- Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
- Dump in the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda and stir together until everything is mixed.
- Fold in the mint chips.
- Scoop cookie dough by the tablespoonful onto a lined baked sheet.
- Bake cookies for 7-9 minutes until they start to look crackly and down on the top.
- Allow cookies to sit on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes before removing to a cooling rack, as they will continue to cook while on the pan.
I love this recipe! I’ve made it now with the mint chips and with white chocolate chips. My only problem is my dough comes out pretty dry (I also prefer my cookies nice and moist), but I just added a couple tablespoons of milk and it was perfect. Thank you for sharing this!
I’d just be careful how you measure your flour. I don’t always do it this way, but flour is supposed to be measured by scooping it by the spoonful into the measuring cup, then scrape anything over the top off. This will get you a considerable amount less of flour than if you just scoop the measuring cup into your flour bag. You can always keep doing it your regular way and just use 1.5 cups of flour instead of 1 3/4 cup and see if that makes the cookies less dry.
I’m excited to make your chocolate mint chip cookies. I wanted to know if you sweetened or unsweetened cocoa powder?
I use unsweetened cocoa powder!
