Triple Chocolate Thin Mint Cookies

Triple Chocolate Thin Mint Cookies

Years ago I was a girl scout. I was a brownie to be exact and only a brownie. Funny that I was the only category named after a dessert! Hmm.. LOL

Anyways Thin Mint’s have and always will be my number one. So chocolatey but minty and having them frozen with ice cream? OH MA GAWW!! Delicious.

After I made these Apple Cinnamon Roll Doughnuts I wanted cookies. Because I am never satisfied with one baked good. Sad, but true. Anyways I crushed up 1 sleeve of Thin Mints and added them to this delicious triple chocolate cookie dough.

This recipe is inspired by one of Jenny’s recipes at Picky Palate. To be honest I knew I wanted to grind up Thin Mints into cookies from some Cookies & Cream Cookies she made years ago. This idea has been on my to do list for a while now and I knew I could pawn off cookies this weekend so that was the schedule. But great minds think alike and Jenny posted basically the same cookie recently!

I used my own chocolate chip cookie recipe and added peppermint extract to keep in with the Thin Mint theme. I used 1/2 tsp in this large batch and gosh darn you could smell that peppermint. And you better believe you could taste it! LOL

This recipe is easy and makes a bunch. Perfect for freezing and baking up a fresh batch for a neighbor, co workers, friends or the kind lady doing your taxes 🙂

  3. In 3 portions add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Mix until just combined and fold in the chocolate chips. Cover and chill for 2+ hours in the fridge.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with a silpat liner if using. Scoop into 2tbsp balls and cook for 10-12 minutes. Mine cooked for 10 1/2 minutes you want them to look under baked so they will set up when cooled and still be soft.
