Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

choc-min-cookies3I really love chocolate chip mint ice cream (probably my favorite flavor) and some day on Pinterest I came across these fancy cookies that supposedly taste like chocolate chip mint ice cream. I checked out the recipe and here I have a the dumbed down/cheap/faster version which turned out delicious and I have brought them to parties since and everyone praises their yumminess! So I recommend them to any semi-homemade ladies/gentlemen who want to impress their bests.


  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • 6 drops green food color
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/2 bag (about 4oz) of M&M’S@reg Dark Mint

choc-min-cookies1choc-min-cookies2Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl/your sweet kitchen aid mixer, mix the sugar cookie mix, butter, extract, and egg until soft dough forms.

Carefully add the food coloring, remember you can’t take it out, so I do one drop at a time until I get the color I like.

Now add the chocolate chips and the dark chocolate mint M&M’S@reg, DON’T over mix these in, because as they crack your green dough is likely to turn brown!

Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on cookie sheet

(Which I typically cover in tin foil and lightly spray with veggie oil because I hate stuck cookies and clean up 🙂

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until firmness you like.

Let cool slightly and SERVEEEE!
