Minty Hot Cocoa Cookies

The other day, I heard about these Hot Cocoa cookies, so I had to try them out. I used dark hot chocolate mix, a bag of dark chocolate and mint chips and chopped up a leftover dark chocolate bar. The recipe says to chill the dough, so I did, but my cookie dough balls pretty much stayed in a ball form, they didn't flatten out like theirs, so maybe skip chilling and they'll flatten out? Anyways these are really yummy Christmas cookies!

2 sticks Salted Butter- At Room Temperature

1 cup White Granulated Sugar
⅔ cups Packed Light Brown Sugar
2 whole Large Eggs

1 teaspoon Salt
1-¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
10 oz bag Dark chocolate and Mint Chocolate Chips (NESTLÉ)

Note Chill time!
Cream butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. In a separate bowl, combine flour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda. Add to wet ingredients in 3 to 4 parts, making sure all is incorporated. Fold in chips. Chill the dough for an hour or so.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Use a 2 TBL size ice cream scooper to scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a silpat. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
