Chocolate Mint Brownie Cookies

This is another recipe that I tried for the first time this year. These cookies are delicious and go great with a tall glass of milk. Not only are they yummy but with the rich mint green and chocolate colors they look great and are very festive. This recipe makes a lot of cookies so it's a perfect treat to make for a Christmas party or to give to neighbors. Just a tip- If you make these cookies make sure you don't over bake them and keep them in an airtight container so that they stay soft and chewy.

Chocolate Mint Brownie Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 dry brownie mix
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • mint chocolate chips

cream butter, sugar, vanilla and salt well. scrape down sides of the bowl. add eggs and beat until the mixture is fluffy. add cocoa powder and brownie mix. blend. add flour, soda, and mint chocolate chips. combine until well incorporated but do not over mix. bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. remove immediately from cookie sheet to a cooling rack. store in an airtight container so cookies don't dry out.
