Double Chocolate Mint Cookies + GIVEAWAY

This post is brought to you by McCormick and Mom it Forward.

UPDATE: YAY!! My team (Team 6) won! Thank you for helping us with our Virtual Bake Sale!!

You guys all know how much I love COOKIES, right? And you probably have guessed by now just how much I love CHOCOLATE too. Put the two together and you have one happy blogger. ;)

I’ll pretty much take any excuse I can get to make some yummy cookies… especially if they have chocolate. What if I told you this next recipe has DOUBLE the chocolate? Pretty sweet, right? I’m calling this next recipe: Double Chocolate Mint Cookies. It has a chocolate base and has White Chocolate Chips and Chopped Chocolate Mints too (I guess technically that makes it triple?!)

I have a new favorite cookie - Double Chocolate Mint Cookies! { lilluna.com } #McCormickBakeSale

I’m happy to report that they turned out FABULOUS!! They were chocolate-y and minty and oh-so soft (definitely my kind of cookie!)

I’ll definitely be adding this one in on the cookie rotation. :)

      You will LOVE it Becca!! You can leave the chopped mints if you like MINT or leave them out for a non-minty treat. They were sooo good! ;D

      Thank you, Carissa. I must admit… I may be mildly addicted to baking cookies. They are so fun and the kiddos love to help. Win-Win!

    Thanks so much for a great recipe. A special thanks for making it from scratch, as I am trying to teach my young daughter the joy of cooking and she likes to help me measure and pour etc., so my preference is things from scratch.
    And I cannot wait to try these.

    I am so not a baker, so I am not sure where the eggs and peppermint come in… Probably in step 4? As it appears step 3 & 4 are duplicates in the the directions…
    3.In a large browl beat butter and sugar with a mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy
    4.Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy

      Hi Jo! So sorry about that. Went in and fixed the recipe… eggs and extract go in after beating the butter and sugars together. :)

    Awesome recipe! I just made them, and they turned out beautifully. I did add a tsp. of vanilla extract to the mix, and this seemed to round out the mint flavors quite nicely.
