Best Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies!

chocolate mint cookie recipe from scratch

Introducing what I think are the best chocolate mint chip cookies. It’s another great recipe out of my favorite cookie cookbook, Milk & Cookies: 89 Heirloom Recipes from New York’s Milk  Cookie Bakery.  Every recipe I’ve tried  from this book has been absolutely *delicious*!

But now let’s talk about these mint chip cookies surrounded by a rich chocolate base.  Everything up to the chocolate chips is part of a ‘dark chocolate base dough’ to which your choice of ingredients can be added.  In this case, I added a 12 oz. bag of mint chips and a bit of peppermint extract.  My next go at it will be with peanut butter chips!

Best Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies (IMHO)

Today I have another fabulous recipe from my favorite cookie cookbook* for you.  We will start off with the bakery’s base cookie dough, which in my opinion is the best peanut butter cookie recipe I’ve come across.  One that you will use over and over again.  And to it we we’ll add chopped salted peanuts and chocolate chips.  And we’ll put a Dove chocolate candy right in the middle!
