12 Days of Treats Cookies

Mint Dark Chocolate Cookies

Mr. Kringle and I love dark chocolate.  We imbibe in two “medicinal” 72% squares five days a week because…flavinoids.  This chocolate obsession spills over into cookies.  When a cookie looks and almost tastes like a brownie, we’re in.  Mr. Kringle loves mint meltaways so I thought what better way to celebrate the holidays than with a cookie that has a chocolate mint in it?

Mint Dark Chocolate Cookies
Prep Time:
10 minutes
Cook Time:
12 minutes
Total Time:
22 minutes
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Valrhona)
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2-3/4 cup Andes mint baking pieces
  • 1 package Andes mints
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, white and brown sugars. Then add vanilla and eggs.
  4. Gradually add the 2/3 of the flour mixture.
  5. Add chocolate and mint chips and stir to combine.
  6. Then add final 1/3 of flour until dough comes together.
  7. Drop scoops of dough on a lined cookie sheet. (Roll if you want a smooth cookie, drop if you want a chunky, rustic cookie)
  8. As is, dough is light mint in flavor. For a stronger mint flavor, make a hole in the middle of the dough ball and fill with mint chips and cover with dough so they don't bake out.
  9. Bake 10-12 minutes then allow to set on sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  10. When they are cool, cut a slit in the middle of the top of the cookie and slip a full Andes mint into the top.
