Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies

Tuesday, December 9, 2014
Soft and chewy chocolate cookies with chocolate and mint chips are a favorite all year and super easy to make.
Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies are the perfect recipe for Christmas from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

When we were at the grocery store last weekend there was one of those displays of mint baking chips on sale that was screaming, stock up! Stock up now before they're gone because you know the minute you run out and head back to the store to get more they'll be gone.

So yesterday when the kids were wanting to make cookies to fill our snowman jar we decided on Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies.

They're always a favorite and perfect for the cookie jar or holiday cookie trays.

We thought these would be great to enjoy while we decorated our Christmas tree, but by the time we had dinner we opted to snuggle on the couch with our cookies and watch a Christmas movie instead. Our poor tree has been sitting in the corner of the living room naked for the last few days.

Hopefully tonight everyone will be up to getting it decorated.

If not we'll have to make another batch of Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies for tomorrow because they'll be gone by tonight! 

Good thing I stocked up.


Cream together 1 cup Room Temprature Butter,  1 1/4 cup Brown Sugar and 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar.


Add 2 whole Eggs, one at a time and 1 tablespoon of Pure Vanilla Extract. Beat until smooth.


Scrapes sides of bowl well and mix in 3/4 cup Cocoa Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt and 1 teaspoon Baking Soda until well blended.


Add 2 cups Flour, mix until well incorporated and scape sides of bowl as needed.


Stir in 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips and 1 cup Mint Baking Chips until evenly blended.


Using a heaping tablespoon or standard sized cookie scoop place cookies on ungreased baking sheet about 2" apart. Use remaining chocolate chips and mint baking chips to press into top of dough balls.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 minutes until set around edges but centers are soft.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 4 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack.

Cool completely before storing.

Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies are always a favorite.

Double Chocolate and Mint, what's not to love?
