I baked these yesterday just to make sure they were as delicious as I remembered, and you'll be happy to know they were even MORE delicious! I hope you enjoy them:)
This was originally the "Herseys cookie recipe" but I've modified it (for maximum deliciousness purposes)
Christmas Treat #1: Snow top chocolate mint cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of cocoa
- 1 cup (12-oz. pkg.) dark Chocolate Chips or mint flavoured chocolate bar
- 1 drop of peppermint essence
Stir together flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add eggs; beat well.
Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in chocolate,cocoa and peppermint (the result is the glorious chocolatey mixture below).
Roll teaspoon sized balls of cookie dough in icing sugar and drop onto ungreased cookie sheet.
