Chocolate Mint Cookies


  • 1 cup butter melted (or coconut oil for vegan alternatives)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs (Egg replacement for vegan option) 
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Flavour Drops 
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. Sift the dry ingredients into the bowl and stir just enough to combine. Fold in the mint extract and then fold in the chocolate chips. Drop the batter by heaping tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 8 minutes. Let cool completely before removing to racks.

  •  Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • White Chocolate Chips
  • Chocaholic Chocolate Mint Syrup 

Best Baking Temperature

To achieve the best texture and flavour, chocolate chip cookies should be baked at 375°F. Cookies baked at too low a temperature tend to become hard and stale while those baked at too high a temperature turn crispy instead of moist.

How Long Do Chocolate Chip Cookies Last?

Cookies stored in airtight containers will keep up to three days. However, cookies kept in sealed Tupperware or Mason jars will keep longer. Airtight storage will prevent moisture build-up inside the container, keeping the cookies fresh longer.

Why Are My Chocolate Chip Cookies Flat?

When baking cookies, it’s important not to overbake them. Overcooking causes the cookies to spread out and lose their shape. The key to achieving the right consistency is to set the timer for around 2 minutes less than the recommended cooking time.

Tips & Tricks

• Use a fork to gently stir the batter after mixing. Don't overmix the batter.

• Keep cookies tightly covered once cooled.
