Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies Ingredients:

Chocolate Cookie Ingredients:

  • Butter — can use salted or unsalted butter in this recipe. If using salted butter, reduce the salt by 1/4 teaspoon.
  • Brown Sugar — this recipe calls for light brown sugar.
  • Sugar — also called granulated sugar.
  • Eggs — large-sized eggs.
  • Vanilla Extract — I suggest using pure vanilla extract in this recipe.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder — I suggest Callebaut, Ghirardelli, Guittard, Trader Joe’s. I buy my cocoa in the bulk bins at Winco.
  • Flour — all-purpose flour
  • Baking Soda — this is what gives the cookies the perfect rise.
  • Salt — the flavor enhancer and integral in baked goods.
  • Chocolate Chips — I suggest semi-sweet chocolate chips but can use milk chocolate.

Creamy Mint Frosting:

  • Butter
  • Cream Cheese — make sure it is softened to ensure creamy frosting.
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Mint Extract — I love to use Nielsen-Massey Peppermint Extract
  • Green Food Coloring (optional)

Chocolate Ganache:

  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  • Heavy Cream
  • Andes Mints (for topping)

How to make Mint Chocolate Cookies:

  1. Cream together butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and whip for 1 minute longer.
  2. Fold in cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until the mixture comes together. Mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips. I love to use Ghirardelli and Guittard chocolate chips.
  3. Bake on light-colored baking sheets. Make sure to not overbake! It is better to underbake the cookies rather than overbake.
  4. Make the mint frosting by whipping together softened butter, softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, mint extract, and a touch of green extract.
  5. Make the chocolate ganache by melting together chocolate and heavy cream until smooth and creamy.
  6. Once the cookies have baked and cooled, frost the cookies with mint frosting. Freeze the cookies for about 20-30 minutes before adding the chocolate ganache.
  7. Top with chocolate ganache. Return back to the freezer or refrigerator to allow the chocolate to set up. Top with chopped Andes mints.
  8. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

RECOMMENDED BAKING TOOLS:

  • Light-Colored Baking Sheets — I suggest using a heavy-gauge aluminum pan. If you use a dark-colored baking sheet, the heat from the oven is attracted to the dark color and the bottoms of the cookies will cook faster and may become too brown.
  • Kitchenaid Mixer — this is my go-to stand mixer and is perfect for creating the perfect cookies.
  • Parchment Paper Sheets — make for an easy clean-up plus help the cookies to bake evenly.
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons – you want to invest in a quality set of measuring cups and spoons.
  • Large Cookie Scoop — a cookie scoop is perfect to use to make uniform-sized cookies. 
  • Wire Cooling Rack — a gridded wire rack allows air to circulate around the cookies.

  • Fold in cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until the cookie dough comes together. Mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • Roll into balls or use a cookie scooper and place on a light-colored baking sheet, at least two inches apart. Gently press down on the cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Make sure to not overbake! It is better to underbake the cookies rather than overbake them. Set aside to cool.

Chocolate Ganache:

  • Place chocolate and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave on 50% power in 30-second increments until the chocolate is melted and the ganache is smooth. Let it cool for 5 minutes before placing it on top of the cookies.
  • Remove the cookies from the freezer and top them with ganache. If the ganache isn't too warm, top it with chopped Andes mints. Return back to the freezer or refrigerator to allow the chocolate to set up. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
