  2. Chocolate Thin Mint Christmas Cookies Recipe

A Christmas cookie can be any cookie that brings back Christmas memories. For me, that list is never-ending. My childhood was filled with endless cookies every season. There were oftentimes so many that we hardly knew what to do with them all! This is a great problem to have and one that I have seemed to make into a tradition.

Christmas time evokes a feeling of nostalgia unlike any other and I can’t stop baking and making all sorts of treats. Homemade goods really do make the best gifts and are just fun to have around. These chocolate thin min cookies are a family favorite at The Farm and you will see why! They are a chocolate cookie sandwich with a smooth and creamy mint center! They’re so delicious that I usually double the recipe!

Chocolate Thin Mint Christmas Cookies

4.47 from 15 votes
These Christmas cookies combine two amazing flavors: chocolate and mint! They're a sandwich cookie, which means double the treat!
Prep Time 35 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 47 minutes
Servings 25 cookies


  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¼ cup corn syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 25 thin mints


  • Melt chocolate in the microwave and set aside to cool slightly. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat melted chocolate, butter, corn syrup, egg, and sugar on low speed until well incorporated. Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to mixer running on low speed. Increase speed to mix until just combined. Chill dough in an airtight container for at least two hours or overnight.
  • Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon measurer, make small balls of dough. Roll in sugar and place on a parchment-lined or ungreased baking sheet. Put in a preheated 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes, until set but slightly soft in the middle of the cookie.
  • Let set on pan for two minutes. While warm, turn half of the cookies upside down. Place thin mint on top and immediately set another cookie on top, creating a sandwich. Let thin mint melt then twist and gently push cookies together. This spreads the thin mint to the edges and seals the "sandwich."
  • Let cool completely and enjoy!

  1. These cookies look so good! What brand thin mint do you use? It didn’t look like the ones with the white cream in the center. Thanks so much!

    Glad I found you on you tube!!!

  2. Have been loving your instagram videos…What type of of thin mint do you use in these cookies…..Andes, York peppermint patty?
    Would love to make these but was not sure what to use in the middle.

  3. These cookies look so easy and delicious. I think my husband will love them because he loves thin mints. I’ll let you know how they come out. Thanks, I really enjoy watching you.

    These are great! Only substitute I made was to use bittersweet chocolate instead of semi sweet. They are delicious. For the thin mint, I used Franco chocolate mints and cut them in half to make them thinner. They melted fine between the two warm layers. These will make a great Christmas gift. Thank you!

    I need help watch your video like four times before I started making these cookies got all my ingredients out measure my flour like you said refrigerate it for over two hours went to Make them They came out flat like their wasn’t enough flour, could it be that I’m using unbleached flour and I might need some more can you please help me because the smell was delicious and they taste good they just flat and buttery

  7. The chocolate mint cookies were hard the next day. I had them in a closed container. I had to throw them away. Did nit want a broken tooth. They were great the first day. Let me know if I did something wrong in making. I would like to try again.
    Thank you love your recipes.

    These are a hit and pretty easy to make. Don’t be a slave to any holiday. I’ve just made these for a Easter party for a group of foster kids. They wanted chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. The Chocolate Thin Mint “Easter” Cookies are hubby approved! Thank you for your creativity and fabulous recipes … well, that just the start of your talents!

    These are so easy. Great for a beginner baker. I sent them to my adult sons, both across country, any they raved about them. So much, they requested them again this year . I did use GF flour and they came out fine.
