Tips For Making Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

When it comes to making these mint choc chip cookies, make sure you follow the recipe! If your mixture is a little too wet try using some more coco powder, don’t add more flour or sugar otherwise it’ll change the texture of the dough too much and you’ll end up with a flat mess!

Always use a silicone baking mat when making cookies, they’re easier to get the cookies off of after. If your cookies look like they’re rising, that’s totally fine! Once you take the cookies out of the oven they will sink and you’ll get that crackle on the top!

I will also say, get yourself an ice cream scoop. I use it for almost every cookie recipe I make and they’re perfect if you want your cookies to all be around the same size, which also means they cook at the same time and some aren’t undercooked!
