After you’ve gotten your mint cookies fill, you’ve got to try these famous snickerdoodle cookies, these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, or soft and chewy peanut butter cookies! Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies Are you all cranking out cookies right and left for the holidays? I know I am! Between testing cookie recipes to share with you all and making treats for neighbors/friends, it feels like cookies have been coming out of the oven nonstop! And these cookies are a total holiday lifesaver. They require no chilling, take about 10 minutes to make, and only have EIGHT ingredients. How Do You Make Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies? Start by beating together butter and cream cheese. You’ll want to make sure both ingredients are at room temperature (not cold, not melted). Egg and vanilla get beat in next! Next, mix in the (dry) brownie mix and pudding mix. That’s right; shortcut cookies! (If you’re looking for from scratch chocolate cookies, try these and leave out the caramel and add andes mint chocolate in place of chocolate chips!) Finally: stir in your add-ins. For these cookies we’re adding in chopped andes mints AND mint chocolate Oreos. If you only want to do one add-in; double either of the add-ins and omit the other one! Quick tips Use room temperature ingredients: Melted butter or cream cheese will make these cookies too wet/greasy. To get either to room temperature quickly, check out this article! Check the ounces: make sure to check the ounces on the brownie mix and pudding mix to ensure you’ve got the right size — too large of a brownie mix and you could end up with dry, crumbly cookies.
