Mint Chocolate Cookies

Sharing is caring!

Mint Chocolate Cookies are amazing! Perfect for Santa to fill up on – and all of his elves – you are going to need to make these this year!


It’s not Christmas without some delicious cookies. Mint Chocolate Cookies fill this need (and are way easy as a bonus).  And, Mint is my boys total favorite!  I think Santa likes them too (at least that’s the rumor!)  Mint Chocolate Cookies are a total snap to make and Santa apparently likes that too – who knew?  I think Mrs. Clause made sure to tell him about it.

Yes – these are made up to look Christmassy, however, don’t limit yourself.  These could be made for most holidays and you know what?  A good week-end too!

You could totally change this cookie to suit your preference. They could be red instead of green. They could use dark chocolate or regular chocolate instead of white (I just think white is so beautiful at Christmas time – and yummy too). I liked the combo that I used here – but it’s totally up for interpretation.

PS. Mint Chocolate Cookies are definitely Santa-worthy! And the kids can really help and have fun with these (it’s not complicated).
