Mint Chocolate Cookies
I know I go on and on about my chocolate and mint obsession. These cookies are slightly chewy, but not cakey. They are full of chocolate and mint chunks and were especially good warm from the oven. This treat will definitely warm up a cold winter afternoon!
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
24 Andes Mint candies, unwrapped
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In large bowl, cream together brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla and eggs. Gradually mix in cocoa powder, flour, and baking soda. Stir in mints and the mini chocolate chips.
Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto cookies sheets..
Bake 11 to 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown slightly. Cool completely on a wire rack.
