These deep, dark, decadent mint chocolate chip cookies are my favorite flavors in a cookie! Mint and chocolate are the perfect pairing when it comes to a cookie. This cookie is a chocolate cookie dough with mint chocolate chips.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

These mint chocolate chip cookies aren’t a green cookie dough (those are coming near Christmas time!) but a chocolate cookie dough with MINT chocolate chips. It’s the reverse of those green cookies basically. You can add in some mint extract to the chocolate cookie dough if you want, but sometimes it’s nice to have a completely different cookie than an all mint one.

Chocolate Chips vs Mint Baking Chips

While I do use brown, real chocolate chips that are mint flavored, feel free to use the green-colored mint flavored chips if you prefer them. The difference is that the “baking chips” aren’t real chocolate, so while they look green and pretty, I prefer using a REAL chocolate chip that is mint flavored. Less of that weird coating feeling in your mouth when you eat them if that makes sense. (if you know, you know.)  However it can be harder to find real chocolate chips that have mint flavoring, that is another conundrum!

  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • one 12-13 ounce package of Mint Chocolate Chips


  • Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. F.
  • Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium 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 it's light-colored and fluffy.
  • Then add in your eggs, one at time, beating them in completely after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
  • Using the mixer on the lowest speed setting, slowly add in the dry mixture little by little, until it has all been added and mixed in thoroughly. Add in the whole bag of chocolate chips and mix until they are just evenly through the dough.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonful onto ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake in the 350 °F oven for 9-10 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. After a minute of so of cooling on the sheets, remove the cookies onto a rack to cool completely.

    You could also add mint flavouring to the wet ingredients and use regular chocolate chips. In a pinch 😉

  2. Deborah says

    Thanks for the recipe and I am really looking forward to making these. Your recipe is so easy to follow.5 stars

  3. Joce says

    Can you freeze these? Are they able to be made ahead at all or kept in the fridge?

  4. FionaBeffie says

    None of my local PC brand stores carry these mint chips anymore! I have even tried writing to the company to find out if they have been discontinued but no answer. 🙁

    Your recipe has made it onto my list of holiday regulars and I must find a way!

      Metro and Sobeys sell them at Christmas time, I buy a bunch and have them on hand.

  5. Christine H says

    Just made these and they are AMAZING!!! I also made a gluten free version by replacing the flour with Namaste’s gluten free blend – they turned out perfectly!! This will definitely be a regular Christmas cookie for me. Easy and delicious. Thank you for sharing!!

    Thanks for the recipe!!! Can’t wait to try it! I bought a package of mint flavored chocolate chips right before Christmas and haven’t used them yet. Unfortunately I can’t find these chips anymore… Will enjoy them with cookies while I can, and wish that I see these chips back next Christmas!
