Double Chocolate Mint M&M Cookies-hero

It’s that time of year for Christmas Cookie Exchanges and these delicious Double Chocolate Mint M&M Cookies would be great to share at one!

If you sort of have a thing for chocolate and mint (like I do), these cookies are the thing for you! They are made from a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe but with a few minor additions.

Cookie Exchange Cookies


1 Stick of Butter Flavored Crisco (equivalent to 2 sticks of butter)

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar

2 Eggs

1/2 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Salt

2 1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa

1 10 oz bag of Nestle® Milk Chocolate Chips

1 bag of Mint M&M’s


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350° *If you have a convection oven use the convection setting.

Step 2: Using your KitchenAid mixer with the paddle attachment mix Crisco, brown sugar and granulated sugar together until creamy.

Step 3: Add vanilla and 2 eggs and mix until combined well.

Step 4: Add salt and baking soda and mix until combined well.

Step 5:  Slowly add flour and mix  until combined. *You don’t want to mix on a higher speed during this step because you’ll get flour all over your counter. I usually do one cup at a time and then the 1/4 cup last and mix on low. Once it’s mixed pretty well I turn my mixer up a little higher for about 10 seconds just to make sure all of the ingredients are mixed well.

Step 6:  Add 1/2 C of unsweetened cocoa and mix until combined.

Step 7: Using a wooden spoon, stir in about half a bag of the chocolate chips and mint M&Ms.

Step 8: Using a cookie dough scoop drop a dozen large spoonfuls of cookie dough onto cookie sheet. Try to get them as round as you can. Add a few M&M’s to the top of your cookie (optional) and bake for 6-8 minutes. Move to cooling rack immediately after removing from oven. Let cool.

    Just made the chocolate mint cookies and am disappointed…wondering what I did wrong? I used butter instead of the Crisco and mixed them as directed. I had to keep increasing the bake time as they weren’t getting done. Any suggestions? Seems as if they needed more flour…

    1. Hi Dianna. I’m sorry the cookies did not turn out well for you. 99.9% of the time I bake cookies using Crisco so maybe that was the difference? The cookies don’t really flatten out and they have a solid fudge type texture. Does that describe how yours turned out? I’m curious what you thought of the taste. Let me know. šŸ™‚
