Double Mint Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have a thick chocolate cookie with a chocolate mint patty wrapped in the center. They are extra minty with the addition of mint chocolate chips in the dough making this cookie infused with peppermint flavor.

How to Keep These Cookies Fresh

Since these cookies are quite chewy, they have to be stored carefully. Once they are cool they need to be put into an airtight container and kept at room temperature they are good for up to 4 days. If you love mint and chocolate, these are a must.

Baking Tip

These cookies are going to take more dough than usual, around double what you would normally make one cookie with, so this recipe yields around 16 cookies or so.

How to Make Perfect Cookies

These Mint Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies almost always come out perfect, and the dough doesn’t need chilling before you bake them. However, since I have made these so many times, I have found that if you have a really warm kitchen or a humid day, these cookies may not bake up as nicely shaped if the dough isn’t chilled slightly.

Happy Baking

  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 package Mint Chocolate Chips
  • 20 miniature peppermint patties


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl, making sure that the cocoa isn't lumpy and is well mixed in.
  • In your mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light-colored and fluffy. Then add in your eggs, one at a time, beating them in completely after each addition. Add in the vanilla.
  • Slowly add in the dry mixture little by little, beating into the wet mixture until it has all been added and mixed in thoroughly.
  • Using the mixer on the lowest speed setting, add in the whole bag of chocolate chips and mix until they are just evenly through the dough.
  • Take a large tablespoon of the batter and flatten it slightly on your palm. Take a peppermint patty and place on the dough. Top with another 1/2 tablespoon of dough and round out nicely into a dome shaped cookie (see pictures)
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15-17 minutes. Remember that the key to wonderful cookies is just under baking them by a minute or so and this is especially important with these cookies as the cocoa can dry things out. These will take longer than normal cookies due to their size. After a minute of so of cooling on the sheets, remove the cookies onto a rack to cool.

    Would love to make this recipe, but I can’t figure out how much cocoa to use, as there seems to be a glitch in the amount in the recipe.

    • Elizabeth Kendall says

      Until Karlynn gets around to answering you, my Le Cordon Bleu training tells me about 2/3 cup cocoa.

  2. Kara says

    How much cocoa powder? (the recipe has some weird characters instead of a measurement.)

  3. tubiemomma says

    This recipe only makes about 20 cookies.  :(  They are undoubtedly awesome, but I was taking these somewhere and expected to have more than I did.  I suppose it would also work to just make them much smaller using the “bite size” peppermint patties you can find in a bag now along with all the other bite size candy bar types.  I think I will do that next time as eating one of these is like eating two cookies plus a piece of candy!  Yikes!

    5 stars

    Ah, but the internet abounds with ugly stuffed cookies. Pet peeve. Lumpy, bumpy cookies just to say you “stuffed” something in them. I am picky, mine are beautiful for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

    I love how popular stuffed cookies have become in the food-blogging world

    EVERYONE is making them
