Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies
are easy to make and a delicious festive cookie we’ve been enjoying recently.
The mint chips in this basic chocolate chip cookie recipe make it special. I didn’t know if the boys would like the mint chips, they surprised me with a thumbs up.
When the boys like something they take whatever it is to school to share with their lunch buddies. When they came home they asked me to make more so they could bring them to school again. I guess that’s a ‘good thing’!
Who knew the kids would like the mint chips – I was surprised because mint is not always a fan fav here in our casa.
I’m happy that the all the kids enjoyed them. Another batch is now in the oven.
Pick up a bag of mint chips and bake away. Here is a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe.
- 1¼ cups AP flour
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup packed brown sugar (I used light brown sugar but you can use dark brown)
- ¼ cup sugar (I used Stevia equivalent)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup mint chocolate chips
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda.
- With an electric mixer beat the butter and sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy - approx. 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well after each addition and then add in the vanilla.
- Reduce speed to low and gradually add in the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix).
- Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
- Drop a tablespoon of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.
- Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden around the edges but soft in center.
- Cool slightly on the baking sheets for 5 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
