Chocolate Cookie (12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies)

Welcome to week 9 of 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies! With less than a month until Christmas, it’s time for cookie swaps and office parties. The best thing you can have for those situations is a super easy, versatile cookie. This chocolate cookie recipe is a great base for a ton of different additions, in fact it’s the same base I used for the mint chocolate chip cookies I posted earlier in the week. These make a great bite size cookie that would be perfect to serve along with all the other goodies what will be around at parties, and people will appreciate the fact that they are small.

Make sure to check out the other post this week!

Some suggestions for flavors:

  • 2 cups of chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of mint chips, 1 cup choco
  • late chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips, 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 cups peanut butter chips

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped Andes Mints
