three chocolate mint cookies stacked on a white plate.

These Chocolate Mint Cookies are a chewy cookie recipe. The chocolate mint candy goes on top of the cookie when it is hot from the oven. The chocolate will melt to  a spreadable consistency and once cooled, the chocolate mint cookie has a thick chocolate mint candy coating on top.

I love to make these cookies year round, but especially love to make them for holiday celebrations. They are great for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or St. Patrick’s day!

C is for Chewy Chocolate Mint Cookies

I love cookies of all types. But, I have to admit, that my very favorite type of cookie is a chewy cookie. These Chewy Mocha Toffee Chip Cookies are right at the top of my list of favorites, along with these Chocolate Mint Cookies.

The outer edges of these chocolate mint cookies is slightly crisp, and as you bite into the cookie your teeth go through the chocolate into a chewy cookie inside.

*please see the recipe card for a complete list of ingredients and instructions*

Semi sweet chocolate chips, this is my favorite brand.

All purpose flour

Large Eggs

Rimless Cookie Sheet

Chocolate Mint Candies, I use these candies.

Tips and Recommendations

  • Be sure to pack the brown sugar into the measuring cup tight. 
  • Substitute milk chocolate chips for the semi sweet chips.
  • Don’t skip the 1 hour refrigeration of the cookie dough before baking. Doing so will make the cookies spread too much when baking.
  • Use a slipmat in place of parchment paper.
  • A rimless cookie sheet is best as it allows the heat to distribute evenly around all of the cookies.
  • Substitute the peppermint crunch candies in place of the chocolate mint candies.
