12 Days Of Christmas Cookies: Mint Chocolate Delights

I spotted this recipe (of all places) at Albertsons Grocery.  It was on a tear-pad in the baking aisle next to the chocolate chips.  Knowing Monkey Boy is a huge fan of  mint chocolate chip ice cream…I decided to take the free recipe card home.

As you can see, when I made the cookies, I decided to “go big or go home.”  Only 6 cookies per sheet.  Afterall, these cookies were for Monkey Boy.  If you have a teenage boy, you know how they inhale food.  So making giant cookies (vs. the standard size) should net you 24 cookies.  If you are making these for normal people (read: not teenagers) then you should be able to get 4 dozen out of this recipe.

Preheat oven to 325º F

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup Baking Cocoa (I use Hershey’s)
1 teaspoon baking soda {15 Cool Uses for Baking Soda}
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
10 oz Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels

Blend eggs, vanilla, brown sugar, granulated sugar and butter together until creamy. Then add remaining ingredients. Scoop (I used a 3 tablespoon scoop) onto lined cookie sheets (I use silpats). Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the centers are set. Cool and move to a wire rack.

These were tasty!  Monkey Boy highly recommends them.
