Test Kitchen

Mint Chocolate Cookies with Chocolate Chips

I was making our browned butter chocolate chip cookies and at the point I was added the vanilla, I realized I accidentally put in the mint extract by mistake. So I went into test kitchen mode and came up with this chocolatey, minty cookie.


  • 2 sticks of Brown butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup lite brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup regular grain sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of pepermimnt extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee
  • 2 extra large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt (don’t use Morton’s)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups of high quality chocolate chips
  • Optional confessional sugar for dusting

Making It

  • Set the oven to 350 degrees
  • Put the butter and sugars in a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.  Cream them on medium for 3-5 minutes. While the paddle is still going add the eggs one after the other and the peppermint and vanilla
  • Sift together the flour, coca, baking soda, baking powder,  coffee crystals, salt into mixer and continue until fully incorporated.  Add the candy and let continue for 30 seconds or so
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and take a smaller increase scoop and place the dough, 2 inches apart, depending on the size cookies you want
  • Cook for 15 minutes, let cool and serve
