These easy cookies are packed with fudgy chocolate flavor and mint chips! A classic combination in one irresistible cookie.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare two baking sheets with a silpat or parchment paper.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir to fully mix and set aside.
Melt the chocolate chips and the butter (combined) using double boiler, a metal mixing bowl over a saucepan of boiling water OR the ‘melt’ function of a microwave. Stir as needed during the melting process, until smooth texture. Do not over cook.
In the bowl of a standing mixer combine the eggs and lightly beat (alternatively a hand mixer or whisk may be used). Mix in the sugar. Add the melted chocolate, and vanilla extract, mixing until fully combined.
Gradually stir in dry ingredients to fully combine and stir in the 1/3 cup of mint baking chips.
Place tablespoon amounts of the cookie dough on the prepared baking sheets with 2 inch spacing in between them. Bake for 10 minutes and check for doneness (the cookies will have some cracks in them, be glossy but not dry; do not overcook); if still too soft allow to bake a few more minutes. Note: I found different baking pan types make a difference of a few minutes in the baking duration.
Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, remove and place on cooling rack to cool completely. Store the cookies in a sealed food storage container (refrigerated if more than a few days).
* all purpose gluten flour may also be used.
