Mint Chocolate Delights
Nestle Tollhouse recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 butter cup or margarine, softened (I used butter)
2/3 cup granulated sugar (I used Splenda blend)
2/3 cup packed brown sugar (I used Splenda blend)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 10 oz pkg Nestle Tollhouse Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels
Preheat oven to 325.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, 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 tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes approx. 4 dozen cookies.
I saw these chocolate chips in the Christmas section at Target and decided that I needed to make these cookies. They taste like cookie versions of chocolate mint brownies that my mom makes. Very good! I used my cookie scoop for the first time today. So easy!
