  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mint m&m candies
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Add the butter and sugars to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until well combined with the paddle attachment.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined.
  • Add the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt to the mix and stir until a soft dough forms.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and candy by hand.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to drop 12 balls of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 11 minutes exactly. Cookies will look underdone, but will continue to set up while cooling.
  • Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Cool before serving.
  • Store in an air-tight container.



The espresso powder can be found in most any grocery store near the rest of the ground coffee. It's entirely optional here, but it really helps deepen the chocolate flavor of the cookies.
