I asked my viewers on YouTube, what kind of cookies they wanted me to bake for the next Cookie Monday. I gave three options, Mint Chocolate Chunk, Green Tea, and White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies. Boy, was it a close vote! I had over 500 comments voting between Mint Chocolate and Green Tea, but Mint Chocolate Chunk won.
If you are a mint lover, you will thoroughly enjoy the cookies. In every bite, there is mint and a huge chunk of chocolate, which I think is one of the best combinations ever.
Tips and Tricks for Making These Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies:
- Make sure to give an even space or distance between each cookie when baking. It will prevent the cookies from sticking to each other after baking.
- Do not over mix the cookie dough. After all the ingredients are well-combined, then the mixing process should be done. Overmixing it would make the cookies rubbery.
- For easy baking, use a nonstick baking sheet. If you do not have it, you can use a regular cookie sheet and just line it with parchment paper.
- If you love more texture on your cookies, you can add chopped almonds and mix well.
- The dough of the Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies when almost done will be kind of dry so kneading or mixing it by hand would be better than using a handheld mixer.
