The double chocolate mint chip cookie is a popular alternative to the traditional chocolate chip cookie. This minty morsel is very popular with kids and adults alike. It isn't made in the traditional way of most cookies, so it is very important to read the directions prior to beginning the baking process. Although it is a bit more difficult than most recipes, due to a few additional steps, the result is well worth the extra effort.
The ingredients list includes:
3 cups mint chocolate chips, divided
2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
Gather all ingredients into one area, making sure that you have everything you need. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Melt 1-½ cups of the mint chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave oven. If using a double boiler, use warm not boiling water. If using the microwave method, stir the chips every minute, until smooth. Allow the melted chocolate to cool to room temperature. In a bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients; flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In another bowl, combine the softened margarine, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla until smooth and creamy. To this mixture, add the melted chocolate and eggs, beating until well mixed. Gradually add the dry ingredients to this mixture. Stir in the remaining mint chocolate chips and the nuts.
After the mixture is complete, drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for eight to nine minutes at 375 degrees. Allow the cookies to cool for two to three minutes before removing from cookie sheet; cool completely on a wire cookie stand. This recipe makes about 36 cookies.
