It’s that time of year again – Christmas cookie baking season! One of my all-time favorite flavor combos is mint and chocolate… I mean, what’s not to love? Cool, refreshing mint with sweet, rich chocolate. Yum!
I discovered this super easy recipe for mint chocolate chip cookies last year, and I don’t even know how many batches I’ve made. They’re incredible! I haven’t made many changes to the recipe, but I did kick the mint up a little! So do yourself a favor, and make these cookies!
- 1 pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 tsp mint extract
- 12 drops green food color
- 1 egg
- 1 package mint and chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, mix butter, egg, mint extract, food color, and cookie mix until a soft dough forms. Stir in the mint and chocolate chips. Use two tablespoons to drop dough 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 17-20 minutes or until they start to brown. Serve warm or cool completely; store in a tightly covered container at room temperature.
I made two batches of these the other night to send to Radar’s crew with their skull caps (tutorial to come). I know they’ll love them, and it will start to get them into the Christmas spirit even though they’re halfway around the world.
