Very Easy


Number of serving: 2
1 2/3 C all-purpose flour

1/3 C unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp fine sea salt

2 sticks butter, room temperature, softened

1/4 C granulated sugar

1/2 C packed light brown sugar

1 egg, room temperature

2 1/2 packed tablespoons Fresh Mint, chopped fine

1/2 C semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 C dark chocolate chunks or chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375 F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, cream the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the egg and mix until smooth. Stir in the finely chopped mint leaves.
  • Add the dry ingredients in two steps, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Mix until just combined, don't over mix.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  • Scoop by the rounded tablespoon onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Leave a good amount of space, at least 2 inches between cookie dough balls because these may spread a bit.
  • Bake about 8-9 minutes, removing from the oven when the cookies appear just set. For a soft cookie, make sure to not over-bake.
