(Mint) Hot Chocolate Cookies

I attempted to make some homemade hot chocolate mix for Christmas presents...but we weren't that impressed with it. So back to the drawing boards on that, but I didn't want to throw the ingredients out so I decided to make these cookies with them.

You can leave these without the mint in them, I used mint chips in the cocoa mix so I went with mint chips!

Hot Chocolate Cookies-adapted from What's for dinner?
2 sticks butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2/3-3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup hot chocolate mix(or 4 envelopes)
3 1/4 cup flour(ww and ap)
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup dark choclate mint chips or 1 cup semi sweet

Cream together sugar and butter together. Add in eggs one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Stir together dry ingredients and slowly incorporate dry into the wet ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Place dough in fridge for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350. Scoop dough by tablespoon onto cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 mins. Try not to over bake them. Remove to cooling rack.

**If you didn't over bake them they should be a little fudgy on the inside, I think this is how they are supposed to be and they are delicious!


  1. 2 sticks of butter, these must be good! Yum! Thanks!

  2. These sound fabulous, especially with the mint!
