Mint Chocolate Delights


These cookies are a recipe from Nestle Toll House for their Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels:


I'm sure that I'm just unobservant and these have been around for years, but please forgive me that this was the first time I've ever seen these and was so excited! I guess I do usually shop at health food stores that don't sell normal name brands (in my defense!). So I had to try something with these so I went with the recipe on the back. So good!!! It's a subtle mint flavor in a wonderfully chocolaty cookie, yum yum!


Here's what you're going to need!


First, mix up the dry ingredients: flours, cocoa, baking soda and salt.


With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugars until well combined. Add in the vanilla extract and then the eggs (one at a time, beat well between each addition).


Gradually add in the flour mixture. Lastly, but definitely not least, stir in the Toll House Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels. Seriously tasty stuff!


Drop them by tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes at 325 degrees until the centers are set on the cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes and move to wire racks to cool completely.


These will make a wonderful Christmas treat. It looks like a regular chocolate cookie and then you get a magnificent minty taste when you bite into it. Thanks Toll House, this is one of my new favorite cookies!

  1. I have never seen these before and I shop at alot of diff groc stores! I'm so excited!!! Looking for them on my next trip. Mint is my fav!! Also been wondering if you ever use Tom Sawyer flour? It's a gluten free flour you can substitute cup for cup in any recipe. I just love it! I can't have oats so have never tried oat flour but in case you've never heard of it or some of your readers haven't, they might like to try it! I just order it from their website. Of course it's spendy, like all other health foods, but I've had super luck with everything I make with it! And the rest of my gluten eating family enjoys everything I use it in too;) Keep em comin Kami!
