Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are easy to bake using Nestle's Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels. These cookies are deliciously minty and chocolaty and melt in your mouth.
Homemade (or is it home-baked?) cookies are always the best alternative because not only do you know exactly what ingredients went into the making of them but you can adjust for your families needs...no nuts, for example, if there are nut allergies in the family. Try this very unusual mint chocolate chip cookies recipe soon.
These dark chocolate and mint chips are typically only available during the holidays
, beginning around mid-November, so be sure to stock up if you want to make these cookies any other time of the year. Believe me, once you try them, you will want to make them again! As they say in the U.K., "...they are very more-ish!"
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
. Lightly grease your cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Your Cookie Ingredients
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2/3 cup Nestle Toll House Baking Cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
- 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 2/3 cups (10-oz package) Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels
How to Make Your Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
First, combine flour, baking soda, cocoa, and salt in a small bowl and mix. I always use one that is separate from my mixing bowl.
Beat butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and pure vanilla extract in the mixing bowl. Mix until the mixture has a creamy consistency.
Add one egg at a time, making sure the first one is blended well into the batter before adding the second egg.
Add the flour mixture by thirds, mixing well after each addition. Once the last of the flour mixture has been blended into the batter, it's time to add the dark chocolate and mint morsels.
Fold the chips into the batter using a spatula or wooden spoon until they're throughout the cookie batter.
Bake for 11 - 13 minutes or until the cookies appear puffy on the sides and cooked in the center.
Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes and then remove the cookies to wire racks to completely cool down.
Yield: Approximately 4 dozen delicious mint chocolate chip cookies
