Coffee mint cookies are now a new family favorite in my house. This cookie is an energy booster since it contains coffee and dark chocolate and mint chocolate chips which perks up our mood. The ingredients are so easy to find and the cookie itself is so quick to bake!
Tips and Tricks for Making This Coffee Mint Cookies Recipe:
- Before mixing the dry ingredients like all-purpose flour, baking soda, and granulated sugar, sift them individually. This easy but very important step would make your cookies nice and evenly textured. It wouldn’t be fun biting into a lump of flour in between 🙂
- After baking your Coffee Mint Cookies, store them in an airtight container so you can enjoy them for several days – that is if you did not eat the whole batch in one sitting.
- If you don’t have chocolate chips and have a chocolate bar instead, simply chop it in small bits and you have equally delicious chocolate to go in your Coffee Mint Cookies!
- You can add peppermint candies to this cookie dough if you are a fan of peppermint candies. That would add some color to these cookies, too!
