These taste like a hybrid of a chocolate chip cookie and a Girl Scouts Thin Mint®. I like to make these the week leading up to Christmas as a change from traditional holiday cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon peppermint extract

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup cocoa powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 ⅔ cups mint chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Beat butter, white sugar, brown sugar, peppermint extract, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat eggs into butter mixture until well incorporated.

  3. Whisk flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda together in a bowl; gradually add to creamed butter mixture, beating until dough is well blended. Fold chocolate chips into dough. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto a baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are set in the middle, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
