Equipment

  • baking sheets
  • wire rack
  • measuring cups

  • Measuring spoons
  • handheld mixer or Stand mixer
  • rubber scraper
  • 2 Tablespoon scoop
  • whisk

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips or 1 cup chopped Andes Mints
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Instructions

MAKE COOKIE DOUGH:

  • Add butter and sugars to a large bowl or to the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat with a handheld mixer or stand mixer on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Stop the mixer, add the eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix on the lowest setting until just combined.
  • In another large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and pulse on the lowest setting until combined and no flour pockets remain.
  • Fold in the Andes Baking Chips and chocolate chunks.

CHILL DOUGH:

  • Chill dough for 1 hour.

PREP OVEN AND BAKING SHEETS:

  • Move the oven racks to the lower-middle and upper-middle positions. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats and set them aside.

SCOOP AND BAKE COOKIES:

  • Scoop out 1-2 tablespoons of cookie dough and place the dough mounds on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12-13 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking.

COOL AND SERVE:

  • Remove the cookies from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, and then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Serve and enjoy.
