Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are awesome!

Chocolate Cookies

I made these in Dec. but I thought I would try something different.  The original cookie is made with dark chocolate and mint chips that you can only find around the holidays.  I picked up 2 different kinds of chips, white chocolate and chocolate and peanut butter chips.  I just split the batter and put the chips in different bowls.  The PB Chocolate Chips seem to be winning in popularity.  I had hoped that the white chocolate ones would be similar to the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies at Subway.  They didn’t quite match.  Oh, well.  Nestle…you still make a darn good cookie!

Mint Chocolate Delights

adapted from Nestle Holiday Favorites

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup Nestle Toll House Baking Cocoa (I had Hershey’s)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened

2/3 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1 & 2/3 cups (10-ounce pkg) Nestle Toll House Dark Chocolate and Mint Morsels (I substituted white chocolate/peanut butter and chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 325.  Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in small bowl.  Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in morsels.   Drop by well-rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set.  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.  Makes 4 dozen cookies (I don’t think mine made that much.)

If you ever do get a chance to try them with the mint morsels I highly recommend it.  I think they taste similar to Thin Mints with a little different texture.  YUMMM!!!
