Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I love the combination of Mint and Chocolate! This week is dedicated to the great chocolate mint flavor. I made some yummy Triple Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies which I turned into a cookie crust, then I made some mint chocolate mousse and paired it with a chocolate Martini. Oh yeah, this dessert is gonna be awesome!

I am a cookie fanatic!

I had mixed emotions between eating these cookies and saving most of them for the cookie crust. And, my mom liked them, my husband liked them, and my daughter liked them, so I had to get what I could when I could. I had to sneak them in while taking my photos.

Triple Chocolate flavor with the addition of mint – it’s completely wonderful. Of course you can skip the white chocolate topping if it’s not your thing. Eliminate it all together or use dark chocolate instead.

These mint chocolate cookies are not soft and chewy. They are thinner and a bit crispier. They were looking a little puffy when I removed them from the oven, but they deflated as they cooled. Crisper cookies work much better for crusts anyway.

Stacked and ready to be served.

If you want the mint chocolate cookies to be a fluffier cookie, reduce the butter to 3/4 cup and add 1/2 cup of shortening. The shortening will help the cookies stay puffy and won’t deflate as much.

    Chocolate and Mint is one of my absolute favorite flavor combinations!! I have been slowly making my way over here this week checking out each of the treats, kind of like rationing how much deliciousness I could handle all at one time! ;) I want to eat all of them, I don't think I would share, lol

    Mint and chocolate may be the best flavor pairing ever (maybe even better than pb & c)! These sound amazing and decadent, I think I'm going to have to go buy some peppermint extract! The gif is super fun by the way :).
