Mint Chocolate Delights I wanted to love these cookies, I really did. I was so excited when I found the mint chips at the market and thought what could possibly be bad about chocolate and mint?

Well…these are just eh. The chocolate cookie is nothing special, the mint chips are barely visible, and the end product looks like a big chocolate blob. They didn’t spread at all and look nothing like the picture on the website. Disappointing, but maybe I was just having an off baking day. Has anyone made these before? What did you think?

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) dark chocolate & mint morsels

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by well-rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

Recipe from Nestle.

    Sorry they didn’t turn out wonderful. The recipe looks a little heavy on the dry ingredients…part of the reason they didn’t spread like expected I think. I have a package of these mint & chocolate morsels I haven’t tried out yet….sooon I shall give them a go.

    Recently, I found a recipe for mint cookies in a magazine. It called for green food coloring and mint flavoring. Also, 1 cup each of mint candies (Andes) and chocolate chunks. I substituted a package (2 cups) of the mint/dark chocolate chips that briarrose mentioned above. The cookies are delicious! Next time, I’ll make them smaller so that they aren’t too thin.

    I really love all things chocolate, and mint is an added bonus. I’ll give this recipe a go, the cookies really look great. Thanks for the recipe.
