Ingredients

  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter , melted
  • cup (134g) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (200g) light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups (372g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mint chocolate pieces or chopped up Andes mints

Instructions

  • Note: this dough requires chilling!
  • Pour butter into an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. While still hot, add both sugars and mix on low until combined. Let sit to cool for a few minutes.
  • While butter mixture is cooling, combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir and set aside.
  • Turn mixer (with butter mixture bowl attached) on low. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing completely.  Mix in vanilla extract. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and mint chip pieces.
  • Scoop one tablespoon (or two tablespoon) balls of dough and place close together on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat baking mat. (If the dough is too soft to scoop, you can chill it for 30 minutes first.) Cover the cookie dough balls with plastic wrap and chill overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment or silpat liners. Place cold cookie dough balls 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for about 10-12 minutes. They will be golden on the outside and still doughy on the inside. I like my cookies a little underdone, so I bake them for 10 minutes, but if you like a more done cookie, do 12 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then remove from pans to cool completely.
