Recipe: Chewy Dark Chocolate Mint Cookies featuring American Heritage Chocolate

This is a sponsored post continued from my last post featuring American Heritage Chocolate. All opinions are those of our own and were not influenced in any way.


A few weeks ago I was sent on an amazing trip to Williamsburg, VA to learn about chocolate history featuring American Heritage Chocolate, which I highly recommend checking out that post. It’s one of my favorite places I’ve ever been to. A group of us bloggers tried so many items made with American Heritage Chocolate, and it is the best chocolate I’ve ever had. Fortunately, I was sent an entire box of their chocolate products to make a yummy recipe from scratch with. Since Christmas is coming up, I went with a holiday type cookie, which of course you can really make these any time of the year, but they scream Christmas and comfort to me!


2 cups of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons of cornstarch
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter (3/4 cup) at room temperature
3/4 cup of dark brown sugar
1/4 cup of regular granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 ounces of American Heritage Chocolate Block, shaved/cut into small pieces
1 cup of Mint Chocolate M&M’s

Recommendation: I would recommend to refrigerate the cookie dough for at least an hour prior to making the cookies as the batter is very gooey and sticky. You don’t have to, as I didn’t, but I believe it would work better that way.

– Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
– In a mixer, place the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla and mix on a medium speed for approximately 5 minutes.

– While that is mixing, you can shave/cut your chocolate. I just used a knife to cut it off and it shaved/chunked on it’s own.

– Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
– Next mix in the flour, cornstarch, and baking powder until combined.
– Fold in by hand, the American Heritage Chocolate and Mint Chocolate M&M’s.

– Use a cookie sheet with a SILPAT mat or spray with cooking spray.

– Place a tablespoon of batter onto the cookie sheet, and place a mint chocolate M&M on top.
– Bake 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. The edges should be slightly browned.
– Let sit on cookie sheet after baking for just a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Remember these are chewy, so they do fall apart easily!
– Enjoy!!!
