Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are great for anyone who love the mint-chocolate combination. The addition of pudding yields a soft cookie with wonderful texture. Perfect for the holiday Christmas cookie exchanges! The dough really does look just like mint chip ice cream and the flavors meld together into a delightful baked cookie.

I’m a huge fan of the chocolate – mint combination and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, well this is the perfect time to make them! The result is Andes mints in cookie form- they’ve got wonderful flavor and a lovely, soft texture. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp mint extract
  • 3 drops blue coloring + 10-15 drops green coloring
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips*
  1. Cream together sugar and butter. Add egg, sour cream and pudding mix.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt & baking soda.
  3. Incorporate flour mixture into the pudding mixture and mix until well combined.  Add mint extract and food coloring until desired color is achieved.
  4. Add in chocolate chips. *I used 3/4 cup chocolate chunks, 3/4 cup regular chocolate chips and 1/2 cup Andes baking bits. Any combination is wonderful, but note that while the Andes mint baking pieces add an incredible flavor, they kind of disappear in the cookies. So add them in addition to the 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, if you opt to put them in!
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy! Yields 3 dozen cookies.

Isn’t this fun?! We took this picture on a recent family vacation. We’ve had kids for almost 15 years now so the plain ole, “stand here and smile” pics are getting a little old. My husband is the master of thinking up fun ways to pose the kids. They thought this one was hilarious.

{No, they’re not hanging off a ledge. Yes, my Mama heart was still panicking and I was literally standing right outside the shot and grabbed their hands pulling them over right after we pressed the button!}
