Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies

Originally published Feb 2013.

Sometimes cleaning out the freezer can be a treasure hunt. Such was the case this week when the basement deep freezer got a much needed sorting.

A frozen log of chocolate cookie dough was among the surprises we found and suddenly I remembered where they had come from.

Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

Dark Chocolate Mint Chips are my favourite in this recipe but use whichever you like best.

Back in early December during our annual cookie recipe blitz, I made the dough one morning before work. Then, I realized that I was running out of time to bake them off.

I had wrapped the dough in a triple layer of plastic wrap and tossed it into the freezer intending to bake the cookies that weekend.

2 months later.

Fast forward two months and here are those delicious chocolate mint chip cookies. They look and taste no worse for wear despite their early winter hibernation.

There are two lessons I learned from these chocolate mint chip cookies. First, a reminder that you can always have cookie dough on hand to bake off whenever you need and the second is to clean the freezer out more often!

Sifting the cocoa as well

Sift the cocoa well to make sure it doesn’t clump.

NOTE: This is a very good base recipe to use for other versions of this cookie. Substitute white chocolate for the mint chips, or add nuts like macadamias or pecans.
My son likes to substitute M&Ms for the mint chips too. I’m sure your imagination can come up with a combination that will become a family favourite.
