We’re winding down to the end! It’s very nearly Christmas! This is Day 6 (as in 6 days till Christmas) in our blog series for Christmas baking. This next recipe is for a yummy mint chocolate chunk cookie I’ve made and is awesome. I hope you enjoy it!
DAY 6 – Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 drops green food coloring — (more or less to preferred shade)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks
2 cups creme de menthe baking chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and food coloring; add to butter mixture, and stir until just blended. With a large wooden spoon, stir in chips and chunks. Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
