A rich Mint Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe that’s simple to make and so delicious! They’re perfect for Christmas and go so well with homemade hot chocolate.

Mint Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every year I make these little goodie boxes for the neighbors. They usually include some staple holiday treats around our house, like our Christmas Wreath Cookies {recipe coming soon}. But a couple of years ago I was looking to change it up a bit.

I am a huge fan of mint and chocolate anything. When I was little we use to get boxes upon boxes of mint meltaways or andes candies because apparently that was just the thing to give your letter carrier for Christmas. {Oh, did I mention my mom was a letter carrier.. hehe} I use to down those boxes like nobodies business, they are delicious when they are partly frozen!

Anywho, on my search for a new Christmas cookie recipe I found this awesome Mint Chocolate Cookie by Two Peas and Their Pod.  Well, now I have another staple cookie recipe and you will too after trying it:)

The recipe calls for Dutch-processed Cocoa powder, I found it at my local HEB Market Place. Basically any grocery store that carries a variety of products and some high end should have it. 🙂 You totally need to use it because it give the cookies a rich chocolate flavor. Then I added dark chocolate chips for another chocolate kick and some Andes Candy chips for that mint flavor! Absolutely… amazing!

How to Make Mint Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

To get started, preheat oven to 325º.   Then line baking sheets with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Chill dough for at least 15 minutes. You can make the dough a few hours or 2 days before baking and it will be fine. Just wrap it up and keep in the fridge. Scoop the dough onto a parchment- or silcone-lined cookie sheet, press down on them slightly and bake for 14-15 minutes.

Let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet, they will set up as they cool. {if you remove before hand they will fall apart} Store in an air-tight container.
