Dark Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies

dark chocolate mint cookies
I have been wanting to make chocolate crinkle cookies for a long time now. But I knew I wanted to make them from scratch. And I knew I wanted them to be decadent.
So I used Green and Blacks Dark Chocolate Mint bars chopped up inside each cookie.

Yeah, wow.
The richness of using GOOD chocolate in these cookies was a perfect decision. I loved eating these warm out of the oven, they taste like a rich gooey brownie!

  1. Followed recipe and our cookies did not come out pretty nor did they really spread, but they tasted pretty good….other crinkle recipes had baking powder in the ingredients, curious why this one didn’t.

  2. I know this is like years later, but I have been making these cookies for 4 years now. I discovered this recipe, made the cookies and then even lost the recipe…but I searched far and wide and found it again! So delicious, and such a crowd pleaser. I didn’t make any adjustments and it was amazing the way it was written. I have probably made 7 or 8 batches of these now! Thank you so much for sharing 🙂

  3. These were excellent!!! I had not heard of Green and Black’s chocolate before but was able to find it at my local Meijers store. I Christmas keeper for sure!!! Thanks.

  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
