These Mint M&M Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are a chocolate lovers dream! Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or when you need a little luck!
Chocolate Mint Cookies
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, so treat the leprechauns in your life to this Double Chocolate Cookies with Minty M&M’s recipe! These don’t have to be for St. Patrick’s Day – they are a really delicious dessert for any time of year – but maybe make them on the days when you need a little extra luck.
Chocolate mint cookies may not be something you see homemade often, but I’m not sure why. Mint chocolate is such a classic flavor combination, whenever I make them or my Mint Chocolate Trifle, I get grateful comments from the crowd.
By the same token, if you have people who aren’t crazy about the mint chocolate combination, you could use regular M&M’s in a few double chocolate cookies. The mint in this recipe comes from the minty M&M’s, so you can allow everyone to enjoy their favorites in the way they were hoping. That way everybody wins.
This recipe is vegetarian and nut-free, so a good option as holiday cookies, St. Patrick’s day cookies or even a local bake sale.
Mint M&M Cookies
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 stick salted butter (8 Tbsp), softened
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup mint M&M’s
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
In a large bowl, mix your butter and sugars with a stand mixer or hand mixer – whatever you’re most comfortable with.
Add in your egg, flour, vanilla, cocoa, and baking soda and continue to mix. Pour in your chocolate chips and most of your mint M&M’s (keep some to press on the top of the cookies).
Scoop out your dough with a spoon and roll each cookie into a dough ball.
Press a few M&M’s into the top of each cookie and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove them from the oven when they are ready. Allow them to cool completely and enjoy them with a glass of green milk! (Food coloring makes all kinds of food fun!)
Can I Use Regular M&M’s For These Mint Cookies?
Yes! The mint M&M’s are what gives these cookies their mint flavor, but there is an alternative. If you’d like to use regular M&M’s instead, add a few drops of peppermint extract to the chocolate batter while you are mixing it and you’ll still have some minty goodness in the cookies.
