Double Dark Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies

Best dark chocolate mint cookie recipe. Great for holiday baking and positively addictive. Uses dark chocolate and Andes mint chips.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter — (1 stick) at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, — packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg — at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 ounces unsweetened bakers chocolate — chopped
  • 1 cup Andes mint baking chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg. Mix well. Add the cocoa and mix again.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and add to the chocolate, mixing at low speed just until combined. Fold in the chopped bakers chocolate and mint chips.
  4. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Lightly dampen your hands and flatten the dough slightly.
  5. Bake for exactly 11 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone). Remove from the oven and let cool on the pan for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
