Chocolate Mint Cookies Recipe


Easy to make cool minty cookies

These are a big hit in my house, especially when all of the Thin Mints are gone. This cookie has all of the intense chocolate and mint flavors of Thin Mints, but have a light, soft texture. If they last long enough to go stale, run through a food a food processor and add to other desserts and confections.


1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup margarine

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 large egg

1/4 cup cocoa powder

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup Ande's Creme de Menthe baking chips


Heat oven to 375°F

In a large bowl, cream butter, margarine, egg, vanilla and sugar for 2 minutes with mixer on medium speed.

Add flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Stir until blended. Dough will be stiff.

Mix in baking chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10, or until set. Let sit on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
