Mint-Chocolate Chip Cookies

A while back my brother decided to bake cookies and everyone was a bit… surprised.  He’s not a baker, or so we thought until he proffered a tray of some gloriously gooey and golden chocolate chip cookies between his oven gloves.  I’ll hold my hands up, I got owned.  They were better than any cookies I’ve tried to bake, so I begged him for the recipe and here they are; the minty version. 🙂

Mint-Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 125g softened butter
  • 100g dark muscovado sugar
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 200g roughly chopped chocolate mint thins (After Eights, Mint Creams… Yum yum yum.)
  • sea salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 180.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars, then stir in the egg.
  3. Stir in the flour, then the chocolate chips until you get a wet, sticky dough.
  4. Spoon blobs onto a lined baking tray, then bake for 8 minutes (if you want them as chewy and gooey as possible).
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  6. Leave to cool before you transfer the cookies into a tin… if you can resist them, that is!
