Soft Batch Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies are in the house people! You and Santa's going to love these, that is if you can keep them in the house that long! 😉
Mint + Chocolate = Bliss!!
These delectable, chocolate fudgy cookies are loaded with chocolate chips and mini mint chips! They are the perfect compliment to rich chocolate colliding with mint luv in soft batch glorious cookies.
My daughter, Amber is the mint and chocolate girl guru in our family! I've talked about her obsession about chocolate and mint before. One of her favorites is mint chocolate chip ice cream, so I knew she would love these cookies for sure. Plus, they are screaming yum for the "HOLIDAYS"!!
The cookie texture is so soft, fudgy and rich because it's made with dark cocoa powder and chocolate chips. I love these with milk chocolate chips the best. I've also added milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
I got these speckled mini mint chips at Nuts.com.
If you don't have mint chips, but you still want the flavor of mint, just use a little mint extract. Remember, extract goes a long way, so you want to maybe shoot for ¼ to ½ teaspoon. If you add too much, you may overpower them with too much mint.
As another alternative, you could also sub with Andes Crème de Menthe Baking Chips.
These cookies, SERIOUSLY, these would look great on your tray of cookies to pass around, a cookie exchange or as gifts to your friends or co-workers. Our Soft Batch Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies are definitely Christmas Cookies! Give me a tall glass of milk please! 🙂

Soft Batch Chocolate Mint Cookies!
- 2 ½ cups flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup unsweetened dutch-processed cocoa powder or special dark cocoa powder I like using the special dark cocoa powder
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened, or use vegan butter for vegan option
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs or ½ cup applesauce if vegan option
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1-2 cups chocolate chips of choice use some for decoratives on top
- 1-2 cup mini mint chips or Andes mint chips more for decorative
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and set aside.
- In a mixing bowl beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add cocoa powder and vanilla and mix until well combined, then add the eggs and mix again.
- Add baking soda, cornstarch, salt, and 1 cup of flour and mix on low until combined. Add remaining flour and mix just until incorporated. Stir in the chips, but some some for the tops.
- Using a small (1.25 Tablespoons) cookie scoop, drop the cookie dough onto baking sheet and press more mint and chocolate chips on top for more decorative touch. Press down very slightly, if you prefer thinner cookies. Bake 8-10 minutes. 8 minutes for gooier. If making larger cookies, baker a few minutes more.
- Cookies should be starting to firm up but still soft in the middle. Cookies will look slightly underdone, but you want that soft and fudgy! Remove from the oven.
- After they have cooled a few minutes on baking sheet, transfer and store cookies in an air-tight container, they will stay fresh for a couple of days. Super fudgy chocolate mint cookies!
- Veganize: When using an egg or ½ cup applesauce, your cookies will have a richer flavor and will also help make cookies chewier. Also, use mint extract unless you can find vegan mint chocolate chips. Vegan chocolate chips for the milk or semi-sweet chips.
- If dough is warm, place dough in fridge covered for 30 minutes or so.
- If you don't have mint chips, you can use ¼ to ½ teaspoon mint extract if you wish. Could also use creme de menthe chocolate bits as well.
- Roll the cookies in the mini mint chips to add a lot of green color on top, then add some regular milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
