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.


  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup dutch-process cocoa
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and room temp
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup of mint Chips – I used Andies Mint Chips
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325º.
  2. Line baking sheets with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl , whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and dutch process cocoa powder. Set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer, beat the room temperature butter on medium-high until light.
  5. Add white sugar and light brown sugar, cream well.
  6. Add vanilla to mixer and beat until smooth.
  7. Add the flour mixture in 2 batches, alternately with the milk in one batch, mixing well.
  8. Stir in the Andies mint chips and dark chocolate chips.
  9. 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.
  10. Scoop the dough onto a parchment- or silcone-lined cookie sheet, press down on them slightly and bake for 14-15 minutes.
  11. 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}
  12. Store in an air-tight container.
