Joining us is Sarah from Butter with a side of Bread. If you haven’t been to the blog before, then check it out. The girls do a great job of making you very hungry! Today, Sarah is testing out the recipe for Chocolate Mint Cookies from the book, Sweet Eats by Rose Dunnington.
I’m so excited to actually get to open my new cook book that my Sister-in-law gave me for Christmas. It is called Sweet Eats by Rose Dunnington. This book is full of yummy treats, some easy and some a little more challenging. As I was doing this for a blog post, I decided to try something a little easier and let me tell you, this recipe for Chocolate-Mint Cookies is very easy. It is also very yummy. I made a plate for my husband to take to work and his co-workers had them all gone within minutes!
I also think this recipe would be great to add things to and dress up a little. Dried fruit, marshmallows, caramel, nuts, anything would work well with this basic cookie recipe. So, have a go at it and make it your own!
Chocolate Mint Cookies
125g (1/2 cup or 1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup (packed) brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract (You can use vanilla extract. Raspberry extract may taste good too)
3/4 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I tend to go a little overboard with this ingredient)
