These Mocha Mint Cookies have chunks of chocolate mint candy baked into a mocha-flavored cookie that’s crisp around the edges and fudgy in the middle.


  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons high-quality ground coffee
  • 2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 28 thin mint candies, broken into small bits


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small microwavable bowl, melt 1 cup chocolate chips until completely melted, stirring every 30 seconds for a total of 90 seconds to 2 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Beat in the vanilla. Add the ground coffee and beat on low until completely mixed in. Beat in the melted chocolate.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and beat until well combined. Stir in the remaining 1 cup chocolate chips and thin mint candies.
  5. Form dough into two tablespoon sized balls and place a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten each ball of dough slightly with the palm of your hand.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies start to crackle on top. Let cool on cookie sheets for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
