When you fancy something a little bit different for an after dinner treat, there are a lot of choices available to you. Only one thing will ultimately tickle your taste buds though. Which is why it’s always a good idea to make your own treats on the day. That way you’re making a fresh version of what you desire.

On this particular instance, I was distracted from a cheeky game of bingo by a craving for something minty. The usual route I would go down is creating a mint chocolate brownie, or adding essence to a muffin. This time however, I figured you could do just as well with a mint infused cookie.

Mint Chocolate Cookies
Recipe Type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • 100g soft butter
  • 150g light brown sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 35g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150g plain flour
  • 200g dark chocolate chips
  • Glaze
  • 75g icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder sieved
  • 2 tbsp water boiling
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint essence
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
  2. In one bowl, mix the brown sugar and butter together until creamy. You may find it easier to use a mixer.
  3. Then beat the egg and vanilla extract into the butter and sugar until properly blended together. Put the egg in a bit at a time to avoid curdling.
  4. Next, mix the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder together in a separate bowl, and gradually combine with the creamy mixture by beating it.
  5. Fold the chocolate chips in.
  6. Use a tablespoon to scoop small dollops of cookie dough. Place them onto a lined baking sheet. Make sure there’s space between them because they do expand.
  7. Then bake for 12 minutes. Allow them to sit for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
  8. Transfer the ingredients for the glaze into a saucepan and heat it. Mix together as you go until it’s fully combined.
  9. Then use a teaspoon to drizzle the glaze over each cookie.

Allow to set for a moment, and enjoy!
