Double Chocolate Cookies & Mint Chocolate Variation

Total Time

Adapted from Taste of Home. I made these recently when I had a chocolate craving that would not go away. They definitely took care of that! I made the Mint Chocolate variation after I found a bag of Andes Mint Chocolate Baking Pieces at my grocery store that they had not previously carried. They were a nice treat for my 2 Mint Chocolate fans......

These are too good!! I pressed the dough into mini muffin pans and baked for 8 minutes. It made 4 dozen "two-bite brownie" style cookies. I baked one pan and am freezing the other three for future reference. I'm going to have to revisit this recipe if I can find the mints. Thanks for posting this - I came home from work with such an urge for something chocolate and these are perfect!!

Yummo! I only wish I had added more Andes mint chips. The texture and flavor were perfect, it did only make about 4 dozen though

Yum! I ended up having to bake mine for ten minutes and let them set at least 5 minutes on the stone before moving them to the wire rack (I think the difference in baking times might have something to do with our oven -- it's pretty old -- and the area in which we live). Anyway, I also ran out of chips, so I sub'd white chocolate chips in the cookies and they turned out great! It gave a really nice contrast. I'll definitely be trying the mint variation soon! :)
