Let’s bake cookies!
Get your Holiday Baking Music Playlist going and let’s bake some cookies! These cookies are the perfect addition to your holiday treat plates, they’re perfect for cookie exchanges and delicious for gift giving. This recipe uses a tried-and-true rich chocolate cookie base that I have made many times…you may have seen them in my Hot Chocolate Cookies and my German Chocolate Cookies. It’s a great recipe that I used once again to make these Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies.
Mint + Chocolate = Match made in heaven!
Seriously though, is there any better flavour match than mint and chocolate? And in a cookie? Divine. What’s more seasonal than mint at this time of year?! If you love the taste of mint, you’ll love these Andes mint cookies.
Makes a big batch!
I love it when a cookie recipe makes a big batch, because that means I can keep some out on the cookie plate to enjoy right away, but I can also save some for later by putting a bag in the freezer. Cookies in the freezer means less stress later! Cookie. Baking. Rockstar.
Best cookie tip ever.
These cookies are SO GOOD a little frozen. Do you eat frozen cookies? If you do, then you know how good slightly frozen cookies are…and these, these chocolatey mint cookies are amazing a little frozen. And, when they’re frozen they are perfect for dipping in homemade hot chocolate. YESSSSSSS

- Andes Mints: I found mine at Bulk Barn, but I have also seen them at Walmart and Superstore. If you can’t find them, feel free to use mint chips.
- Cocoa Powder. Use the good stuff. The quality of cocoa makes a big difference.
- Refrigerate the dough. I know this is a hassle, but this dough needs to rest in the fridge for at least an hour, as it lets the flavours come together. As well, if the dough is too soft the cookies will spread out too much. You can even let it sit overnight in the fridge if you want.
- Storage: Store these cookies in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5 days.
- Freezing: These cookies freeze well. Store in a ziplock bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. Tip! These cookies are SO GOOD a little cold, which also makes them a perfect cookie to make ahead of time and freeze.

Have a delicious day!
