Mint Chocolate Chip Blizzard Cookies

It’s official…I’ve got my Christmas baking on!  And it’s taken everything I had in me not to start until this week!  I figure why not start early, enjoy some treats now, and freeze the rest for later!  Yum.

So every day this week I’m going to share with you what Christmas cookies I’ve been baking!  First up are these Mint Chocolate Chip Blizzard Cookies!  They just seemed like the perfect place to start…they’re festive, minty and delicious!

And the BEST thing about them?  You can make half the batch to enjoy now, and freeze the cookie dough for baking later!  Genius for this time of year really!  I love that you can take them out of the freezer as you need them, and then bake them fresh.  Heaven on Earth.


Mint Chocolate Chip Blizzard Cookies
 
Serves: Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup mint chocolate chips
  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips, melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars. Then mix in the vanilla.
  3. Add the eggs, beating in one at a time.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
  5. Add the flour mix to the butter mix. Combine.
  6. Add the white chocolate chips, chocolate chips and mint chocolate chips. Mix.
  7. Drizzle in the melted chocolate chips and gently stir to make a marble effect.
  8. Drop by the spoonful on to a cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  10. Cool on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes, then transfer them over to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Enjoy!
Notes

– When adding the melted chocolate, be careful not to over stir. You want a swirl effect, and if you stir too hard the cookies will just end up chocolate coloured.
– If you are baking these cookies from the freezer, just increase the baking time by about 3-5 minutes.

  1. Oh yum! Those sounds super yummy!

  2. Those sound delicious. I love having my baking done in November and tucked away in the freezer. I just finished doing a cookie baking week last week on my blog. You can find Day 5 here: http://gracie-senseandsimplicity.blogspot.ca/2012/11/christmas-cookie-week-chocolate-magic.html (and the rest are there by working backwards).

  3. Oh, I love these. Mint and chocolate are amazing. I love the marbling!

  4. Too bad I already made dessert today, or I would get up and make these right now. I guess there is always tomorrow!

  5. Yummy my Son loves Mint Chocolate as much as I ! I am going to try some Kiss Pies this Year, however couldn’t find any Mint Hershey Kisses so I am going to use the Candy Cane ones instead. Those Mexican Hot Chocolate look pretty yummy too. Laura, and I will take your word how good they really are.

  6. Can anything look more delicious?! I have to give these a try..thanks for sharing :)
    Have a wonderful week ( i know i will since i will be baking this recipe!)
