(5.00/5 - 1 vote)


- 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


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, cream the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy.

Step 4

Add in the egg and mix until smooth. Stir in the finely chopped mint leaves.

Step 5

Add the dry ingredients in two steps, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Mix until just combined, don't over mix.

Step 6

Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.

Step 7

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.

Step 8

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.
