Triple Chocolate Mint Cookies

Pin It


Chocolate on chocolate cookies..makes your heart skip a beat doesn't  it?  I am not a big fan of mint cookies..I could eat one or two but I will not crave for it.  This cookies however, is not very "minty".. I can taste the chocolate mint but it is mild  and it doesn't make me sneeze . Maybe it's just me.. but anyway.. this cookies are chewy , fudgy and my oh my so delicious. A friendly and loving reminder , just like anything else..moderation is the key to any sweet dessert.


Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1 (3.4 oz) package of chocolate fudge
1 cup Andes mint baking chips
1 cup dark chocolate or milk  chocolate chips

Directions:


Prepare your baking sheet, line it with parchment paper.
In a medium size bowl , whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.


Cream butter and the sugars until creamy and fluffy.


Add in the pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat well until well incorporated. Gradually add the dry ingredients ,mix until combined . Do not over mix.



Fold in all the baking chips.



Put the dough ( wrapped or in a covered bowl) in the fridge for about 1-2 hrs.
After a couple hours,  Preheat oven to 350.
Shape your dough into a ball  ( your desired size) and flatten .  Bake for 11 minutes.
Let it stay in your cookie sheet " to continue baking". Transfer to your cooling racks to let it completely cool.



I always put some chocolate chips on top of the cookies just right after they came out of the oven. They look more tantalizing that way.



Enjoy!
