  • 4 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour bleached flour toughens baked goods
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter softened (3 sticks)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 10 oz. pkg. mint chocolate chips


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. mint/peppermint flavoring



  • Heat oven to 350°.
  • Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  • In large mixing bowl, mix softened butter, sugars, baking soda, salt, eggs, vanilla, and cocoa.
  • Add UNBLEACHED flour (bleached flour toughens cookies), and mint chocolate chips.
  • Stir in with a wooden spoon.
  • Do not use an electric mixer or cookies will be tough.
  • Roll into balls and place on sprayed cookie sheets.
  • Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until set. (Mine took 14 minutes).
  • Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets cool completely.


  • In a small saucepan, combine all glaze ingredients except vanilla.
  • Bring to a boil; boil 5-10 minutes.
  • Stir in vanilla; cool.
  • Beat until smooth and of glaze consistency.
  • Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies; allow glaze to set.


NOTE: These scrumptious cookies are wonderful with or without the Chocolate Mint Glaze.
NOTE: Preparation time includes time needed to drizzle glaze over cookies.
NOTE: For easier clean up, place cookie racks over top of waxed paper. Then glaze cookies. The drips from the chocolate glaze will drop on the waxed paper instead of the counter.
NOTE: While it may seem that there is a lot of glaze, you will use almost all of it when glazing the cookies. The glaze thickens as it cools. It’s best to spoon the glaze on the cookies before it gets too thick.
