"This is my version of a popular scouting cookie. Instead of thin and crispy, these are thick and chewy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

unsweetened cocoa powder
unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cups
1 (12 ounce) bag
dark chocolate chips
Very good recipe! Chewy on the inside yet a little chispy on the outside. I used the mint/semi sweet chips from Nestle and it worked out well. Adding this one to my Christmas cookie list!
For me, these cookies came out dry and they didn't spread much at all. I don't like when cookies, especially chocolate cookies don't spread. I think next time I try to make this type of cookie, I'll go with a regular chocolate chip recipe and do my own modifications. *second set came out better. I flattened the cookies before baking and didn't wait for the edges to get crisp. 1st set may have been overcooked.
These were great! The peppermint flavour is not overpowering, these taste somewhat like the Arnotts mint slice we get here in NZ. Delish! I used a full cup of butter instead of half butter half shortening. Will definately make these again!
I made some changes. I used non hydrogenated margarine instead of shortening and butter. I used unbleached flour instead of bread flour. I also used some dark chocolate chunks, and some broken dark Belgium chocolate wafers and I used dark German cocoa powder. The cookies turned out good. I would definitely make these again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Used dark chocolate chips/mint chips instead of the extract. These were delicious when warm and when cooled.
LOVED THESE! I used unbleached flour, all butter, left out the 2nd egg yolk and extract, used Nestle mint chips (I had bought these and was looking for a recipe to use in) -- next time I plan to make part with walnuts and chocolate chips -- best cookie dough ever!!! :)
These quite honestly are my new favorite cookie! The mint and chocolate are phenomenal! I highly suggest using white chocolate chips instead of dark. Very simple to make and great taste!
These came out great. I did use regular unbleached flour instead of the bread flour and Smart balance for the shortening. The family loved them.
