A chocolaty chocolate chip cookie, with peppermint flavoring. This is for kids or adults (I'm a 10 year old.) They taste best when they're still hot.

I've made these twice this week. The first, exactly like the recipe, they were good, but not unbelievably good. They spread out a lot for me, and I could have used more mint. The 2nd... perfect. I melted the butter before adding the sugar and used bread flour. I added a 1/2 cup of crushed candy canes (5 canes). I also didn't grease the baking sheets. As several others recommended I only baked for 9 minutes. The final result is absolutely delicious! And more festive with the candy cane pieces. Read More

baking these cookies took a lot of time and the stickiness of the peppermint destroyed two baking pans they tasted really doughy like there wasn't enough sugar and/or liquid... will not bake again Read More

reduce cooking time by a few minutes and they stay soft and chewy and great tasting for days, (but they didn't last days around our house) Read More

This were soooo good!! I used milk chocolate chips because that's what I had and they turned out great. The only thing I might change would be to add a little bit more flour to make them a little softer when they cool. Everyone at the office loved them!! Read More

I made these cookies & they are so good! My whole family liked them. I followed the recipe but cut the baking time as suggested in other reviews (I baked them for 9 minutes). They turned out great and are still soft the next day. Read More

These are very tasty little morsels I feel that there wasn't quite enough mint flavour but very good all the same the secret to keeping them soft and delicious is to slightly underbake them. Read More

A tasty chocolate-chocolate cookie. They do become quite crisp when they have cooled so if you like a softer cookie eat them right away. Read More

Every time I make these for my a cappella group they're all gone in less than half an hour. Soft chewy delicious and really easy to make - though I did take another reviewer's advice and added crushed candy cane. Love it so much!! Read More

Very good cookie. I baked them for 10 minutes and they turned out great! Not too crunchy at all! I also doubled the recipe to make enough for my husband's fire academy - no problems there either! Read More

These cookies turned out wonderfully! I made them for a friend and they were a hit amongst him and his coworkers. Instead of using just plain old chocolate chips I used mint choc chips for some extra flavour! Read More
