Make It Pretty Wednesdays: St. Patty’s Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Really? We only have three days until St. Patrick’s Day?! How did that happen? Did this holiday sneak up on you like it did me? If you want to do something a bit fun and festive, using items you already have in your house… make GREEN Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies!

You can either omit the vanilla and add a teaspoon of mint flavoring and green food coloring, or you can use my grandma’s yummy Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe… the green hue is my addition!


  • 1 cup butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 16-18 drops of green food coloring
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth and consistent.
  3. Beat in eggs and mix in mint extract.
  4. Dissolve baking soda in the hot water and then add to batter.
  5. Add salt and mix until combined.
  6. Add food coloring and mix until combined.
  7. Stir in chocolate chips.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 or 10 minutes-until edges begin to brown. Allow to cool a bit on the cookie sheet. Enjoy!

Remember… having a green cookie on you at all times might be bad for the waistline, but you won’t get pinched on St. Patrick’s Day!

      So to not eat a whole batch of cookies in one sitting (I am guilty of this)… only make a few of them. And then you just have to battle with yourself to not eat the rest of the cookie dough (guilty of this too)!
