Christmas Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Tis the season for baking cookies and I just love it! I made these to be a prop in our Christmas card picture. I’ll post that another time πŸ˜‰ These cookies are so delicious because not only are there dark chocolate chips in them, but also mint M&M’s!! So Christmasy and delightful. Yum. Let’s get to cookie baking…

What you will need…

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 bag mint M&M’s
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and cocoa. Set aside. In another large bowl, mix butter and both sugars until combined. Add eggs and peppermint extract and mix until combined. Add in flour mixture and mix until combined. Stir in M&M’s and chocolate chips. Put in fridge for 20 minutes.

Drop dough by 1 inch balls onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on wire rack and enjoy!
