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 🙂 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!
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.
Mini chocolate chip time!!
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’m usually not a mint fan for desserts, but I have to say I made an exception for these. Such a great flavor combo!
