Every year during the holidays mint chips show up in the store. This year I totally forgot about them until a few days ago. This recipe is one of my favorites, made sweeter by the fact that we make them only in the winter! They are great with a mug of hot milk or hot chocolate.
Chocolate Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cup flour (use some white whole wheat!)
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks) softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups mint + chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375F. Line baking sheet with parchment.
Mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. In a mixer cream the butter, sugars and vanilla. Add eggs and blend. Gradually add in flour mixture. Remove from mixer and stir in chips.
Drop by spoonful onto baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, cool on racks. Enjoy!
