Holiday Chocolate Mint Cookies

January 3, 2014Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2013

Holiday Chocolate Mint Cookies are fantastic! This is another delicious cookie that we baked for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this past year. It’s also one you should include in your holiday baking when you get the chance. I used my recipe for M&M Party Cookies. But, instead of adding M&Ms, I used up a bag of holiday chocolate chips and chocolate and mint chips as well. They turned out so fabulous I could have eaten half a dozen of these tasty treats in one sitting!

This amazing cookie is LOADED with chocolate, LOADED with mint, and LOADED with everything you want in a cookie! It has texture, it has crunch, it has chewy, it has gooey, oh, my it’s just plain heavenly. If you’re family loves cookies these are great to try over the holidays. But a warning in advance: you can only purchase these holiday chips from November to about January. So if you want to make them other times of the year, you’ll have to purchase extra bags NOW!

I’m really glad I was making these for someone else or they may not have made it out of our house! If you’re looking for a sure-fire winner of a cookie recipe then give Holiday Chocolate Mint Cookies a try the next time you’re in the mood to bake. You’re whole family will be salivating over these wonders.

Here’s a close up so you can see the texture of the cookie. I added the chips on top just after the cookies came out of the oven and they will soften right into the cookie as it cools. Holiday Chocolate Mint Cookies are great for holiday parties.

Here’s what I did.

In a large mixing bowl put granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and Crisco shortening. Add vanilla, baking soda and salt.

Mix with an electric mixer until smooth. I guess I was lazy and didn’t feel like getting out my electric mixer on the day I made these. I just whisked the ingredients together with a whisk. They still turn out fine this way.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add a full bag of Nestle chocolate and mint chocolate chips, and a half bag of Nestle holiday baking chips.

Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes or until done.

As soon as the pans come out of the oven use remaining holiday chips and press them down into the tops of the cookies. I put about 6-8 chips in each cookie. You can see the heat from the cookie causes the morsels to soften and melt. That’s good because they adhere to the cookie more that way.

Holiday Chocolate Mint Cookies are incredibly delicious. Your family will have the whole batch eaten up in no time! Make sure you purchase a bag of Nestle holiday baking chips and Nestle chocolate and mint chocolate chips around the holidays if you want to make these cookies. Most stores don’t carry these types of chocolate chips much past January.
