These are exactly what they sound like. Soft cookies with chunks of Andes mint chocolates inside. YUM! These are definitely on the sweeter side and are quite minty. Casey requested MINT. I gave her mint! These cookies were easy and fun to make!
Soft-Baked Andes Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Recipe from: Sally’s Baking Addiction
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups chopped Andes Mints
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With an electric or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, then the egg yolk, mixing for about 1 minute after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix for about 1 minute on low speed. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix on low speed until combined. By hand, fold in the Andes Mints.
Drop rounded tablespoon-fuls onto ungreased baking sheet or silicone mat. Bake for 9-12 minutes until sides slightly begin to brown. Depending on how big you make the cookies, the time will vary. We made smaller cookies and they took exactly 9 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes and transfer to a wire rack. Cookies stay fresh & soft in a sealed container at room temperature for 1 week. You can also freeze the cookies for up to 2 months!
