So, I know that the majority of my posts have been and probably always will be mostly desserts. I just love baking goodies for people! But, I will get some more hardy meals on here because there are a lot of them I just love. With that being said, these were super popular at Sunday dinner at the in-laws last night.

They are basically a soft chocolate cookie, and I used Andes Mint Baking Chips instead of the Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels, and they turned out melt in your mouth good!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups (10-ounce pkg.) Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels, or I replaced with Andes Mint Baking Chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by well-rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 11 to 13 minutes of until cookies are puffed and centers are set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
