Recipe from Steve who says: "Here's a recipe that I came up with because I love those thin mint cookies that the Girl Scouts sell every year. Just tried them out for the first time about a half hour ago yummmm! Enjoy!"

Makes about 60

1 cup butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup baking cocoa
2 packets instant mint flavored hot cocoa (approx. 1 = oz. packets)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups chocolate mint chips or finely chopped
chocolate mint pieces (like Andes chocolate mint

In a bowl beat butter on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla beat until combined. In another bowl combine baking soda, salt, cocoa, instant mint cocoa packets, and flour; sift all these dry ingredients until well combined. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. With a wooden spoon, stir in remaining flour mixture. Stir in mint chocolate chips or mint pieces.

Roll into 1 inch balls. Place 2-3 inches apart on an un-greased cookie sheet. Dip the bottom of a drinking glass in sugar and flatten the dough balls to about 3/8 inches. The sugar on the bottom of the glass prevents the dough from sticking while flattening. Bake in a 375 F oven for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Would make this again.
I bought some mint chips because they were such a pretty color, but had no recipe for them so I tried this one. I used regular hot cocoa mix because I had that in the house and am glad I didn't try with more mint as the chips I bought are very strong! The cookies are chewy and delicious, but they're not the prettiest cookies on the block - they spread out too much and just don't look very impressive. But, they taste great. 4 stars

Would make this again.
I enjoyed this recipe a lot. The cookies smelled wonderful and tasted even better. I have made them twice already. The first time with plain hot cocoa mix because I couldn't find the mint chocolate cocoa(at first) and it was very good, more chocolately with a hint of mint. The second time with the mint cocoa mix and they were wonderful, especially if you are looking for a chocolatey minty cookie. 5 stars

Had tonnes of potential but were really really bad. Neighbourhood children Threw them back at me. It was embarassing. Smelled good though 1 star

I love making these cookies. They are a hit here at home and disappear before you can say, "Pour me another cup of coffee please." Please feel free to try different variations. I'm thinking about using hazelnut instant cappucino packets and butterscotch chips. Enjoy! Steve 5 stars
