My all-time favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip. As such, I thought it only natural to make it into a cookie!
These cookies are three things: fudgy, thick and mint-tastic (having my own blog gives me free reign to make up my own words). They have a brownie-like consistency and are packed with mini chocolate chips!
These cookies don’t spread out very much in the oven even at room temperature, so let chilled dough warm up for quite a while before sticking the cookies in the oven. Don’t worry if the cookies look too thick when they’re done baking–they are supposed to be that way and they will flatten slight as some of the air inside leaves them as they cool.
Be sure to use peppermint extract, not mint extract if you want to avoid your cookies tasting like toothpaste…!
So, if you don’t have time for a trip to the ice cream store and you’re craving the best ice cream flavor around, try making these cookies for a mint-alicious (I did it again) dessert.
