Double Chocolate Mint Cookies:
Kidz In The Kitchen

So, yeah.. the first time I made this recipe I added double the sugar and then lost count and I’m pretty sure I added more.  Not so good.

The second (and third and fourth and fifth….) times I have made this recipe, you will be much relieved to know that I did not mess them up.

They… are AMAZING!

I’m a huge fan of Mint Chocolate anything (well, not really anything, but you know what I mean), but these are a sure-fire winner in my books.  My kids love them.  My husband loves them.  Every guest I have served them to has loved them, too.

Here you go…

2 cups butter or margarine, softened

2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp peppermint extract

4 cups flour

1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

2 cups chocolate chips

1) Cream butter, sugar and eggs

2) Sift the dry ingredients.

3) Mix ’em all together.

4) Ball and bake at 350 for 8 – 10 minutes.
