  • 1 cup Butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup Granulated sugar
  • 1 cup Brown sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup Unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • 2 cups Semisweet chocolate chips
  • 8-10 tsp Dried mint, or 8-10 tbsp Fresh mint
  • 1 cup Chopped walnuts, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Grease cookie sheets (I like Pam).
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.
  4. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  5. Add the flour, baking soda, mint and cocoa powder and mix well.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Refrigerate dough at least one hour.
  7. Drop by rounded tsp about one inch apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  8. Bake cookies 12-15 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool on baking sheets, 1-2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.


I prefer to bake with dried mint and use fresh mint in drinks and for cooking. Drying the mint is easy and can be done quickly. See info on drying mint.
