Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies

Share

I am so excited to share my Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies with you today! My all-time favorite cookie flavor is mint chocolate – I could eat them forever! One of my tips when cooking chocolate mint cookies is to use the best quality cocoa powder you can get your hands on. My other tip is to use fresh mint leaves when possible for a subtle hint of mint.

To make these cookies, combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Blend sugar and mint in a food processor and melt butter and chocolate together. Combine the melted chocolate with eggs and vanilla before adding the dry ingredients to form a dough. Roll the dough into balls and coat in powdered and granulated sugar. Bake in the oven and enjoy!

To make Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
