Mint chocolate Chip cookies

We took a little break from the painting and home remodeling to whip up some of these tasty Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.  With St. Patrick’s Day looming in the near future I decided to give these cookies a try.

And…they tasted pretty darn good.  My son LOVED them…but he is also a fan of mint chocolate chip ice cream.  He has declared them one of his favorite cookies!

Either way, they would be fun to serve up for St. Patrick’s Day or make some and give them away!

    I made these for my kiddos on St. Patrick’s Day. They LOVED them! Said they were better than regular chocolate chip cookies. The store I went to didn’t have any creme de menthe baking chips so I chopped up a cup of Andes mints instead…yum! Thanks so much for this recipe…it’s a keeper in my house!

    So YUMMY! Just made them. Didn’t use food coloring since it isn’t a holiday. The kids love them so much… they have already been requested for future cookie plates.

    Does anyone know any substitutes for creme de menthe? If I just leave it out, will the peppermint essence be enough for the flavour?

    I am a huge fan of mint chocolate chip ice cream so I was super excited to make these cookies. However when it came time to add the mint extract I had discovered I did not have any as it had spilled all over my spice cabinet. I substituted almond extract instead and the results were phenomenal….a deliciously sweet cookie with chocolate chips and a subtle nutty aftertaste. If these are so delicious with almond I CAN’T WAIT to try them with mint!

    I love this recipe, though I’d used one from another site before. Add an extra 1/4 c flour, 1/4 tsp of salt and cut the mint extract to 1/4 tsp. This amount of mint extract overwhelms the chocolate and buttery flavor of the cookie dough. Creme de menthe chips are simply chopped andes mints, so substitute as you see fit.

  10. Andrea says

    I’m pretty sure I followed the recipe but my “dough” looks more like cupcake batter. Idk what I did wrong!

  11. Hillary says

    My dough was super flaky, so I added an extra egg last minute. As my two year old would say – They’re delicious!

  12. says

    I had been looking for a good cookie recipe that combined mint and chocolate, and this was absolutely perfect! The green color was festive and Christmas-y, and they were easy to throw together. Since I couldn’t find creme de menthe chips, I substituted 1 cup of Hershey’s mint chocolate chips instead of the creme de menthe and semisweet chocolate chips. I also just dropped the cookie dough onto the baking trays by the teaspoonful instead of rolling into a ball. Delicious recipe! I will definitely be making these again!

  13. Kathy says

    This is a great recipe, and I’ve made it many times. I receive many requests for this cookie from my kids and their friends.
