I took my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, one of the first recipes I shared here over seven years ago, and added a generous handful of mint chips.

This mint chocolate chip cookie recipe is a simple one. You’ll cream the butter and sugar together, beat in eggs and vanilla, and stir in the dry ingredients. Then add the chocolate chips and mint chips.

Mint chips are easy to find around Christmas, but the rest of the year they can be hard to find. I’ve found ordering them online is the best.

Making perfectly thick and chewy cookies is a little bit of a science. Everything from the temperature of your ingredients to the brand of flour can affect the results.

Don’t stress it too much though, because I’ve got a secret ingredient that delivers awesome results every time.

If you’ve tried pudding cookies, you know how thick and chewy they always are. As it turns out, cornstarch has the same effect when added to cookies. You’re going to use cornstarch in this recipe and they will turn out thick and chewy every time.

Chocolate Turtle Cookies are thick, chewy chocolate cookies filled with caramel bits, pecans, and melty chocolate chips. Classic turtles in cookie form.

Molasses Crinkle Cookies are an old-fashioned cookie jar favorite that’s perfect for holiday cookie trays too.

These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are transformed with a bit of brown butter. If you haven’t tried it before, that browned butter transforms everyday oatmeal cookies and makes them truly amazing.

Caramel Pretzel Cookies are soft chewy cookies stuffed with gooey caramel and loaded with lots of salty, crunchy pretzels. This is a glorious combination of sweet, salty with contrasting textures.

If you love peanut butter cookies, you’ll want to try my peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and if you’re in a hurry, check out the no bake peanut butter cookie recipe too.
