Ingredients

  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter softened (I always use salted, but unsalted works well too)
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 package (10 ounces) Andes creme de menthe mini candy pieces or other mint flavored chips
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  • 1 tablespoon shortening

Instructions

  • -Preheat oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.
  • -In a large bowl, cream the softened butter, brown, and granulated sugars until light and fluffy.
  • -Beat in the cocoa powder, eggs, vanilla, and canola oil until well combined.
  • -Slowly beat in the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and mix until just combined.
  • -Gently beat in the mint candy chips until thoroughly combined.
  • -Use a cookie scoop (or your hands) to roll the dough into golf ball-sized cookies and place them on parchment-lined baking sheets (16 per sheet).
  • -Bake in a preheated oven for 15-17 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets halfway through the baking.
  • -Remove the baked cookies to a wire rack to completely cool before drizzling them with chocolate.
  • -In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the semi-sweet morsels and the shortening on LOW heat, stirring occasionally, until completely melted.
  • -Use a fork (or place the melted chocolate in a piping bag), and drizzle the cooled cookies with the melted chocolate.

Notes

To freeze: Store the cookies in an even layer if possible in an air-tight freezer container for freeze for up to 4 months.
