One day when Hannah and I were making our way through Target, we were cruising down the baking aisle (my favorite aisle, of course) and we spied these Andes baking chips. Hold. The. Phone. What? Right then and there, we stood in front of the baking chocolate and started brainstorming all sorts of recipes in which we could utilize these lovely little mint baking chips and just like that, into the cart they went!

The first recipe on our list for these little pieces of mint heaven were some mint chocolate cookies! I have a great double chocolate cookie recipe that I make all the time, so I just made a few modifications to it (increasing the flour slightly and of course, omitting the chocolate chips in favor of the mint baking chips) and baked them up.

I could hardly wait to get these little babies out of the oven, and let me tell ya, these mint chocolate cookies are absolute perfection! In every single way you could imagine. They’re soft and chewy, and chocolatey, and because the Andes mint baking chips are small, there are tons of them in each cookie; yes, you literally get mint chips in every single bite! You’re welcome!

And as I mentioned before, this is a small-batch recipe, so it only makes about 14 large cookies or 24 small cookies, which makes them perfect for any day…or let’s be real, everyday! Wahaha! But don’t fret, the recipe can easily be doubled to make many, many more cookies, you know, like say for the upcoming holidays! These mint chocolate cookies would make a beautiful addition to a festive cookie platter or holiday gift basket this Christmas!

Oh, and yes you can absolutely just chop the Andes mint candies by hand if you already have those!
