Mini Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Excuse me while I take a moment of silence…it’s the first day back at school for us in AZ πŸ™‚ Β It’s been a great summer, but I will be welcoming our regular routine with open arms. Wishing my sweet boys a wonderful new school year….mama will have some delicious cookies ready for you after school.

Everything mini is so much fun and so cute! I prepared a version of my favorite chocolate chip cookies and made them minty delicious! Perfect flavor combo and totally bite size adorable!

Mini Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Start by creaming your butter and sugars.

Vanilla and eggs up next! This is where you’ll add your peppermint oil or extract. I added about 10 drops and it was perfect. I use the Doterra Peppermint Oil.

Dry ingredients in the bowl! I added instant Jello Pudding mix for a nice texture to these cookies. It really does wonders.

I used a very small cookie scoop to make the mini cookies. You could use a tablespoon if needed. You’ll fit about 20 cookies per large half sheet size baking sheet.

    I just love your creative cookies ideas – flavors and candies included! But do you cut out each of the parchment paper squares for your cookie photos? Do they come ready-made?

    I just had an ingenious idea today. I was eating an oatmeal choc chip cookie with sprinkles mixed in (one of my favorite cookies to date) and thought, wouldn’t it be amazing if you crunched up those pink and white animal circus cookies and mixed them into a regular chocolate chip cookie?! You should do this.
