Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Andes Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
Baking soda is going to help these cookies rise and have a fluffy texture.
Salt helps to balance out all the flavors.
Grass-fed butter is the best in my opinion as it is rich, creamy and full of flavor. Feel free to use a dairy-free butter alternative.
Cane sugar can be replaced for monk fruit sweetener or coconut sugar.
Coconut sugar can be replaced for brown sugar.
You will need a couple eggs to have bind the ingredients together and create a lovely texture. I have not tested this recipe with a vegan egg replacement.
Vanilla extract adds a lovely flavor to any baked good.
A touch of peppermint extract will add a subtle peppermint flavor that pairs well with the mint cookies.
You can use semi sweet chocolate chips, sweet or dark chocolate chips. Feel free to swap for a dairy free alternative.
And of course Andes Mint Chocolates or Andes chocolate chips, however, I prefer to chop the candies myself which creates different chunks and textures.
How To Make
ONE: Preheat the oven to 375F and prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Then, in an electric mixer, add in the softened butter, cane and coconut sugar and mix for 2-3 minutes or until ingredients are fully combined and are light and fluffy.
TWO: Add in the eggs and two extracts next and mix once more. Then, switch to a paddle attachment and add in the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until just combined.
THREE: Fold in the chocolate chips and andes chocolates next and mix once more. Use a single cookie scoop and add the dough to the prepared baking sheet. Top with a few Andes chocolate chunks before baking for 10 minutes.
FOUR: Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack and enjoy!
Tips And Tricks
Use softened butter and not room temperature butter. The butter should still be slightly firm, but easy to press into.
Add more Andes chocolate chunks on top of the cookies for more flavor and a pretty aesthetic.
Bake for 9 minutes for a slightly underdone cookie, and 11 minutes for a more crispy cookie. I found 10 minutes is the perfect amount for both crispy edges but soft and gooey center.
The cookies will continue to bake after taking them out of the oven, so if they seem under done let them firm up for 5 minutes.
