Bought mint flavored chips by mistake so searched for a cookie recipe. The cookies were excellent and will certainly make again.
Just what I was looking for! Spot on temperature and baking time (made mine on the small side and 9 min. was perfect). Just the right balance of chocolate and mint without being heavy either way. Served at St. Patrick's Day Potluck Dinner.
Excellent! We picked some of the new mint filled dark chocolate chip morsels & decided to used them in this recipe with excellent results. I did reduce the granulated sugar by a quarter cup & they were plenty sweet. I could see using this recipe with peanut butter chips in the future. Thanks for sharing!
I love Girl Scout Thin Mints, but never usually buy them. I altered this recipe a bit, just based on my own desire for a twist. Instead of 2 tsp of vanilla, I added 1 tsp of vanilla to 1 tsp of peppermint extract...maybe a little more to taste. I also flipped the sugar measurements, opting for 1 cup of dark brown sugar to 3/4 cup of granulated sugar. From experience, I know that brown sugar yields a chewier cookie than a recipe with more white sugar. Then I added about 1/2 cup of Andes Creme de Menthes and only used 6oz of mini semi-sweet morsels. The end result was amazing with a stronger mint undertone. Everyone loved them, and I loved how soft they were.
This is easy and so versatile. I did Andes chips for mint. Choc chips for Choc/choc chip. And peanut butter for Choc peanut butter chip. I did mine in a mini muffin pan so it made 24 at once and they come out amazing. Like mini cakes. You can really expand on this, just get creative.
These are delicious and easy.
My mom says these are the best cookies she has ever had! (And that woman has tried a lot of cookies).
These cookies are amazing, and have become a new favorite in our household. I did use a little extra flour like another reviewer suggested, and I used three "Green & Black's" Organic Dark Chocolate Mint 3.5 oz bars, cut into chip size pieces. Very yummy!
I found the recipe to be really easy and really delicious! I didn't have the mint chocolate chips on hand, but I substituted those for the regular semi-sweet and added 1 1/2teaspons of mint extract instead. Taste great! Will definitely make again.
My husband and I love mint chip ice cream so I thought I'd give this recipe a try and I'm SO glad I did. This is the BEST cookie recipe I've ever made. Super easy. We used the Nestle Winter blend of mint and dark chocolate. So glad I tried this. I'm going to hoard the Mint Chips now so that I can make these year round. Thanks Sparkle for sharing this recipe!!!
