Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Unsalted butter
- Light brown sugar
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Large egg
- Peppermint extract
- Green food colouring: Optional, but I wanted minty green cookies! I used Sugarflair Sugartint Concentrated Droplet Colour in Holly Leaf.
- Chocolate chips: I used a combination of milk and dark chocolate.
How to make Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
To make these cookies, simply whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornflour, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugars until combined. Add the egg, peppermint extract, and green food colouring (enough to reach desired colour), and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, and place onto a large baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Freeze the dough balls for 1 hour. Freezing is mandatory in this recipe for thicker cookies.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until barely starting to brown around the edges, then allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
