Let me tell you about the sweet snack I’ve been munching on all weekend long.
Double Chocolate Mint Cookies
*Recipe Adapted from Real Simple
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Nestle dark chocolate and mint chips*
Cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until mixed. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly add the flower mixture to the wet mixture. Once mixed, fold in the mint chocolate chips.
*I bought the mint chips during the holiday season and I believe they were limited time only. A good replacement would be chopped up Andes mints or just regular chocolate chips if you don’t want the mint flavoring.*
Scoop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto your cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
Eat as cookies, or add mint chip or vanilla ice cream for a homemade cookie sandwich. Mmm good.
And since I described all the wonderful food I ate this weekend, here is a little preview of the best meal I had. I would highly suggest you take a walk on the wild side and try the tasting menu at Sunnyside Cafe.
Find a fellow adventurer to try it with you because it is a LOT of food.
Happy President’s day to all!
