Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Share on social media

This recipe was so much fun to make. I took our favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes and made a slight adjustment to create these Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The secret to this recipe is Andes Mints. I was telling my husband, I think Andes Mints bring back good memories for me because I still remember going to my Great Grandparents house to visit and they would have a bowl of Andes Mints on their table always. They are delicious, and my favorite ingredient for all of my Mint/Chocolate recipes.

These chocolate chip cookies were already amazing, but add in these mints and they are delicious, and the perfect solution for your mint chocolate chip craving. Here’s what you’ll need to make them.

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For less of a minty flavor, you could swap 1/2 cup of the Andes Mints for regular chocolate chips, as well

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

They’re super simple, but they do need to chill in the refrigerator for a bit, so you’ll want to plan ahead. Here’s how they’re made.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Start by chopping the mints that will go into the cookies. You’ll need 1 cup of these, or 1/2 cup, plus 1/2 cup chocolate chips for the less minty versions. Then, you’ll want to take an additional 1/2 cup of mints and break those into larger pieces. You’ll set those aside, we’ll add them after the cookies finish baking.

Next, you’ll melt 1/2 cup butter.

Then, in a large mixing bowl, add the white and brown sugars. Pour melted butter over top and mix together until smooth.

For the next stage in baking these cookies, you’ll take your medium cookie scoop and place them 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. This recipe makes about 18 cookies total.

At this point, you’ll need to make room in the refrigerator and chill these cookies for at least 2 hours.

After chilling, bake these mint chocolate chip cookies for 11-13 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Once the cookies are finished baking and cooled, press extra chunks of Andes Mints into the cookies.
