Mint + Chocolate = Bliss!!
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! 😉
These delectable, chocolate fudgy cookies are loaded with milk 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.
They are screaming yum for the "HOLIDAYS"!!
The cookie texture is so soft, fudgy and rich because it's made with dark cocoa powder. Surprisingly, there are noo eggs included in this recipe, so it's vegan if you choose to use non-dairy chocolate chips.
I got these speckled mini mint chips at a market here in my little town with one 4 way stop, called "Neighbors Country Market" and I've also gotten them 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.
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. These definitely are Christmas Cookies! Give me a tall glass of milk please! 🙂
