We love cookies! Out of all of the desserts we make, cookies are the one thing I still crave on a daily basis. ? The most requested is classic chocolate chip, however, sometimes we like to get creative and try new things. I made these for St. Patrick’s Day and they were a huge it! I took some of the Andes mints and mint chips we had and added them to our favorite cookie dough to make these extra minty cookies.

I tested the idea for this recipe twice, and the the first round didn’t turn out quite right. They tasted amazing but they were flat as pancakes. That was a no-go. I adjusted the recipe a bit and viola! Thick and chewy with crisp edges and soft centers. Oh, and lots & lots of mint chocolate (the first batch needed more)!

I picked up a bag of mini mint chips from my local restaurant supply store, however, many of the big box stores sell brands like Guittard, Hershey’s and Nestle. If all else fails, just double the amount of Andes and they’ll taste just as good.

I prefer making the dough and refrigerating it for at least an hour. This will help prevent the cookies from spreading and will help the flavors meld together. This recipe calls for vanilla extract only. No mint. I personally prefer it that way. The mint from the add-ins is enough, trust me. ??

TIP: If you portion out the dough (scoop it into balls) before you refrigerate it, you only need to refrigerate them for 30 minutes.

Pop the cookies into the oven for 10-12 minutes, depending on how light or dark you like them and enjoy them while they’re warm. I mean, who can resist a freshly baked cookie with puddles of gooey mint chocolate? Definitely not me!
