Time for a box of Junior Mints.

Give a good mix, smashing Junior Mints completely. I chilled my dough overnight. Scoop dough onto your baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder I used Hershey's 100% Dark Chocolate, unsweetened
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 4 ounce box Junior Mints
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla mixing to combine. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, mixing to combine. Stir in chocolate chips then smash in Junior Mints. All mints need to be completely smashed into the dough. Chill dough for a couple hours or overnight for best results.
  3. With medium cookie scoop, place dough 1 inch apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until baked through. Please note, if mints ooze out of cookies, use a plastic knife to form cookies back to round shape right out of the oven when hot. Let cool for 15 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

    The batter is amazing~ very yummy recipe… but the “baked cookie” is a mess. Not to be negative. Just trying to be helpful. The smashed up junior mint definitely oozes and it isn’t easy to make a pretty cookie by pushing the dough back together- hot out of the oven. Soooo…. After the first semi-messy batch- I decided to make the rest of the batter into a “bar cookie”. This resulted in a much more successful outcome. Bar cookies aren’t as fun for some reason… lol… but tastes just as good!
