I made this recipe exactly as stated and it was indeed delicious. My only complaint is that they don't store well. A second attempt with 1/2 cup less oil and one extra egg made them perfect! No more crumbling cookies!!


I made this recipe with a few alterations (semisweet instead of milk chocolate chips, and extra peppermint extract to taste). I took them to a baking contest, and won first prize in the chocolate cookie categories. The mint makes these cookies less heavy tasting than they would be otherwise. There were no kids under the age of 21 present, but all the kids above that age loved them.


these chocolate mint cookies are the best! i'm a super fan of gooy, chocolaty things and these definately are both! i did make some alterations, though, i don't know how much they affected the outcome- i had the recipe scaled to make 48 servings; i used only 1/2 teaspn salt, 1/3 cup vegetalbe oil, 3/4 cup light brown sugar, and a little over 1/2 cup white sugar, with 1 egg and 1 egg white; 2 teaspoons peppermint extract; and used about 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips. oh and to make sure they were nice and gooy, a baked them for about 7 mins. and only let them set on the pan for about 2-3 minutes. usually i only like cookies when they're straight out of the oven, but these were even addicting after they had completly cooled- i don't know how well they store- they didn't last more than a little over a day at my house!
