How To Make Chocolate Cookie Recipe

  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.

    Yummy! Thanks for tip about the mint melting and using plastic knife to push back together, worked great. Thanks for another great recipe!

    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!

    These look and sound amazing! Junior mints have always been one of my fav candies! Definitely trying these out for holiday baking season.

    My mint-chocolate loving husband just caught me reading your post and has requested I make these ASAP! 🙂 They look awesome! Can’t wait to try them!

  5. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

    OMG, I think it’s been at least a decade since I’ve had a Junior Mint! I think I’ll go buy one pack to enjoy at the movies and make these with another!

    We all love Junior Mints and I love chocolate so it’s kind of a win-win in my opinion. They look perfect for a cold fall evening. Or morning.

    Mmm!! These would be really good now, but also around Christmas when they have the Peppermint Junior Mints out. 🙂 Love Junior Mints!
