To cook Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies, you need about 30 minutes of preparation time. The following are the steps to cook Chocolate Mint Crinkle Cookies easily:

  1. 1 Combine the granulated sugar, eggs, melted chocolate, shortening, baking powder, and peppermint extract in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Gradually beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.
  2. 2 Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours or until dough is easy to handle.
  3. 3 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with Reynolds(R) Parchment Paper; set aside. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in powdered sugar and place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
  4. 4 Bake about 9 minutes or until edges are just set. Transfer the cookies on the parchment paper to a wire rack; cool completely.


  • Who knew these chocolaty crinkle cookies were so easy to bake? By using parchment paper, you don't have to worry about greasing your cookies sheets anymore. Not only will your cookies slide right off the parchment instead of sticking to the cookie sheet, they'll also bake evenly. Plus, the parchment paper is a perfect surface to catch all of those stray sprinkles – so your kitchen will stay clean too!

    My favorite cookie that I've ever made. I veganized it with flax eggs instead of eggs and coconut oil instead of shortening. Yum.

    Mmmmmmm! Very good, but I think I would like them better if I doubled the mint extract. While the cookie dough smelled rather minty, the flavor baked up very subtle. I didn't have unsweet ...
