Mint Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate and mint are one of my favorite flavor combinations. These mint chocolate cookies are so easy to make and so delicious.

These cookies are soft and chewy. They're full of mint chips and topped with a thin layer of mint chocolate.

 Made with a cake mix and Andes mints, they are super quick to whip up. At our house, they are usually gone by the end of the night. I hope you like them as much as we do.

MINT CHOCOLATE COOKIES RECIPE

To get the mint flavor, I like to use the Andes mint chips. You can find them near the chocolate chips. 

It's important to add them right into the dry cake mix first. If you add them after all of the wet ingredients are added, you will find that they don't incorporate well into the batter.

A soft and chewy mint chocolate cookie topped with a thin layer of mint chocoalte.

Ingredients:

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix *
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. oil
  • 2 T. water
  • 1c. Andes mint chips, plus more for topping **

Instructions:

  1. Stir in one cup of Andes mint chips into the cake mix.
  2. Add egg, oil and water and stir with a wooden spoon, just until combined.
  3. Roll into balls the size of walnuts.
  4. Bake at 350 on a greased cookie sheet for 7-10 minutes.
  5. As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, immediately place some mint chips on top of each cookie. 
  6. Once the chips have melted, use a knife to spread them over the cookie.
  7. Remove cookies from pan to cool on a wire rack.

Notes:

*I really like the triple chocolate fudge mix by Betty Crocker, but any chocolate mix will do. **You can use regular Andes mints if you can't find the chips. Just chop them up before adding them to the batter. **You can add 1/2 a mint to each baked cookie to melt instead of using the chips. ***Adding the chips into the dry mix will help them incorporate into the batter better. ***Wrapping the dough around a mint truffle kiss is also yummy!
