“Intimint” Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_4983picnik.jpeg

Yes, my husband named these cookies. I was cracking up and thought I’d give him one title to a recipe. When he ate them he said, “oh these make me feel so intimate” and the story evolved to the point that he named them Intimint cookies 🙂  Weirdo! but a Hot Weirdo!

So, I whipped up a couple batches of these cookies, wrapped them up and gave them to neighbors, my husband’s co-workers and for myself of course. This was one recipe I couldn’t completely get out of my house. Found these awesome Nestles “Limited Edition” Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels at Target. Go quickly and pick up some bags, found them on sale right now for $1.78 in CA. They are ridiculously good and you must try them! If you absolutely cannot find them, you could use those Andes Mints in place of Limited Edition Chips. Hope you enjoy these “Intimint” cookies!!

  1. Jenny, these look delish! I got some of those special edition chips at Target too (in Northern NY). I made some fudge with one bag. Haven’t decided what to do yet with the other one!

  2. Wow Jenny! These look amazing. I’ve been on a huge “sweets” high the past couple of weeks. I will definately be making these later this week so I can get my fix.

  3. Hey Jenny! These cookies look great – I hope I can find those chips! Also, I keep eyeing that cake stand at TJs…it’s too cute in your photos!

    couldn’t find the limited edt. chips so i made these with the andes chips instead. also, i think i made them a bit small, because i got 60 cookies out of it!! but they’re delicious, so maybe smaller is better…

  5. Jessica

    I found these at Super Walmart today and I also saw them in the grocery store too. Anything mint and chocolate can’t be bad! I will be making these this week! Also trying the biscotti as well but with peppermint kisses instead of mint kisses since I’ll have the mint from these cookies. Thanks for the great ideas!

  6. Jolie Medeiros

    I made them and I LOVED them. I have to say they are much better the next day when the green chips are kind of hard and crisp. Love your blog!

  7. I baked these yesterday and my family loves them!! I found the chips at walmart, my target was out. I am going to add them to my christmas giving this year. I will definitly be making another batch soon!!

    Jenny~ I am a newcomer and I don’t know if you respond to these but I thought I would give it a shot. I want to make these cookies but I live in Utah and all my cookies turn out very flat, and I don’t want this to happen to these… Any tips for these cookies for higher elevation… Thanks

    I am not sure why my cookies keep coming out really flat. I bought all fresh ingredients and made 3 batches and they look like pancakes. :o( I was making them for my cookie exchange 6 dozen and they look so bad :o( any ideas what I could be doing wrong??

  10. Jessi

    I made these cookies for a cookie exchange at work and they turned out so yummy. One note: I couldn’t find the specialty chips so I used Hershey’s Mint Kisses and they still taste wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe!!

  11. I have these in the oven right now! Never found the Tollhouse morsels but I did find the Herseys Mint one. I have to make 6 dozen for a cookie exchange tomorrow! Thanks!

  12. Kate

    Just popping my last pan of these cookies into the oven right now. I tried a couple already and I’m not sure they’ll make it to the party I was going to bring them to…these are incredible! I’m glad I scooped up some extra bags of chips! Thanks for this amazing recipe!

    Jenny~

    Thanks for the tips. The cookies were yummy but still flat. I am convinced it is Utah because I never had these problems in Arizona. I am going to try again and add more flour on top of the other tricks. Thanks again.

  14. Thanks for this yummy recipe! I made the cookies this past weekend and it was a huge hit at my house and work. I posted about it on my blog. Come check it out!

  15. Ok, I just found your website and everything looks delicious!! I think I definitely will have a few new cookies on my Christmas trays this year!

  16. Hello, Neat post. There is an issue with your web site in internet explorer, might test this? IE still is the market leader and a good component to folks will pass over your magnificent writing due to this problem.

  17. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?
    A small number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?
