Triple Chocolate-Mint Cookies

Cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and a chocolate drizzle give these cookies a triple hit of chocolate flavor.



Ingredient Line: 
2 cups all-purpose flour
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. baking powder
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. baking soda
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. salt
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup plus ½ cup vegan chocolate chips, divided
Ingredient Line: 
4 oz. Earth Balance margarine, softened (1 stick)
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup evaporated cane sugar
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup light brown sugar
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup vegetable oil
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup plain soymilk
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. peppermint extract
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. vanilla extract


1. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into large bowl. Stir in 1/3 cup chocolate chips, and set aside.

2. Cream margarine, cane sugar, and brown sugar with electric mixer 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in oil, soymilk, peppermint extract, and vanilla extract until smooth. Beat in flour mixture.

3. Roll dough into 12-inch log, 3 inches in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

4. Preheat oven to 350°F, and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

5. Slice dough log into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. (Return log to refrigerator between batches to keep it firm.) Place rounds 2 to 3 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake 9 to 11 minutes, or until tops are crackly. Cool on baking sheets.

6. Melt remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips in microwave on low power or in double boiler. Dip fork into melted chocolate, and shake over cookies to make lines of chocolate. Let chocolate set, then store in airtight container.
