Chocolate Mint Cookies

Do I have some fabulous chocolate mint cookies for you today! A few years ago, I got my hands on a great chewy chocolate cookie recipe from a lady named Natalia de Savigny–a Mom of two of my good friends. Anyway, I adapted it over the years and this is yet another adaptation.

I once brought these to a party and they were the first ones gone. And then I made another batch a week later and everyone again ate them up in one sitting! They didn’t even survive 24 hours! Chewy chocolate cookies laced with Mint Truffle Kisses, are truly addicting.

Main Ingredients

Start by gathering up these ingredients to make these incredible Chocolate Mint Cookies:

  • Butter + Sugar – for flavor and to sweeten!
  • Egg – this provided structure and texture.
  • Vanilla Extract + Cocoa Powder – two flavoring ingredients. Vanilla is more subtle while the unsweetened cocoa powder makes these cookies chocolatey.
  • Flour – all-purpose flour fills out these cookies.
  • Baking soda + Salt – baking soda to help the cookies rise and the salt to balance out the flavors.
  • Mint Truffle Hershey Kisses – these are a seasonal thing! I originally found them right after Thanksgiving. You could also use plain mint chips too. And if you just want plain chewy chocolate cookies, leave the Mint Truffle Kisses out. They are pretty stellar on their own.

    I’m planning in making these for a cookie exchange and I need 6 dozen. If I make the cookies smaller do I need to change the temperature or shorten the time?

    I’m so excited to try them! I love the kisses!
