Mint Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
Why do we all look forward to a little bit of blarney and the wearing of the green each year? Well, everyone it seems is Irish for the day, we all appreciate a celebration, and being touched by a leprechaun! Lucky for us, we have a pot of gold Mint Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie to inspire Irish smiles.
What is it about sweet mint chocolate? The taste makes me feel just a little crazy it’s so good. Our skillet cookie is chewy, slightly undercooked, chocolaty and minty, over the top of the rainbow! Drizzle it with some more mint, add some toasted mini-marshmallows, and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a legendary treat.
In the joyous spirit of St. Paddy’s Day here’s our wish for you,
“May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks. May your heart be as light as a song. May each day ring you bright, happy hours. That stay with you all the year long.”
~ Irish Blessing
LUCKY you, here’s a pin!
Mint Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie
I’ve made lots of cookies in my life, but this is “THE COOKIE!” It really is the bomb, one bowl, one skillet, and it feeds a crowd. If you want to serve a pie-size slice, plan on serving 8, but it’s rich, chewy, and filling. Honestly, Mint Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie will serve at least 16, especially with a scoop of ice cream on the side.
- First off, you gotta get the chips right, I used green mint chips and milk chocolate chips. Both of these items are readily available at my local grocery stores, but I’ve included the link for those who may not have them near by.
- Now preheat your oven to 350˚degrees. Mix the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until creamed. Add the vanilla extract, mint extract, milk, and mix again until smooth. Add the eggs and beat slowly until incorporated. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well. Stir in the milk chocolate chips, green mint chips, and walnuts.
- Press the dough into a 10-inch cast iron skillet that has been greased and floured, I love to use Baker’s Joy. You can use a larger cast iron skillet, but be sure to adjust the time. The cookie dough will be more spread out, so it will bake more quickly.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until it looks golden brown, if you like your cookie doughy and soft. (We aren’t huge fans of raw cookie dough, like many, so I cooked mine longer.) If you like it more cooked and set in the center, cover you skillet with foil and place it back in the oven for 15 more minutes.
- Remove from the oven and let rest for at least one hour in order for the pieces to hold their shape when cut.
For Mint Drizzle
- Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of green mint chips in a ziptop bag.
- Place it in the microwave and melt on high power for 15 seconds intervals until the chips have melted.
- Snip the corner of the bag and drizzle over the top of the Mint Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie.
- Sprinkle and press mini-marshmallows over the top and toast them with a culinary torch . You may also flip on your oven broiler. Just be sure to watch carefully under the broiler till they are lightly toasted.
- 17 Tablespoons of butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon mint extract
- 1 Tablespoons milk
- 2 eggs
- 2-3/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- 1-1/2 cups green mint chips, divide
- 1 cup chopped walnuts,(optional)
- 1 cup mini-marshmallows
- Preheat oven to 350˚degrees.
- Mix the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until creamed. Add the vanilla extract, mint extract, milk and mix again until smooth. Add the eggs; beat slowly until incorporated. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well. Stir in the milk chocolate chips, green mint chips, and walnuts.
- Press the dough into a 10-inch or larger cast iron skillet that's been greased and floured.
- Bake for 20 minutes, see notes. Remove from oven and let rest for at least one hour in order for the pieces to hold their shape when cut.
- Melt remaining ½ cup of green mint chips in a ziptop bag and microwave on high power for 15 second intervals till melted and smooth. Drizzle over the top of the Mint Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie. Sprinkle and press mini-marshmallows over the top of the skillet cookie. Toast marshmallows with a culinary torch or toast them under your broiler, watching carefully not to burn..
- Cut skillet cookie into wedges and serve with a scoop of ice cream if desired.
If you use a large skillet, bigger than 10-inches, be sure to adjust the baking time as the dough will be more spread out and cook more quickly.

What fun! Looks delicious!
the only green that i’ll be wearing on St Patrick’s Day is what’s in my wallet – now as for the recipe….i’ve never tried skillet cookies before!
They are so easy and taste way better in a skillet!
Oh I believe it – but then again, anytime that there’s cookies involved (especially chocolate chip cookies) 😀
Okay I know I need to back away from this table right now but this is calling my name
That’s the goal! You need to make it and then eat it!
Looks like a fun treat! Love the chocolate + mint flavors.
Thanks! That is one of our favorite combinations, too!
It is fun to make with kids, too!
What an absolutely delicious sweet treat!

Thanks, Jolene! It definitely is!
That that omg that mint chocolate chip skillet cookie…looks absolutely amaaazing…just right for St Paddy and I am fasting all things sweet and chocolatey…can anything be worse?
This is the last thing you want to see when you are fasting! When you are done come back and make this cookie! 🙂
What a fun idea! Love mint and chocolate together.
I know! It is one of my favorites!
Love mint and chocolate. I never heard of a culinary torch before.
A culinary torch is an awesome kitchen tool used to brown the tops of baked alaska, creme brulee, marshmallows, etc. Your broiler can accomplish the same thing, the other is just super handy. Thanks Anna!
OMG, gonna share this post on my Mom, I will make her do this!
I know she would love it, Vianna!
This looks delicious and like it would pair really well with a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream (one of my favorite flavors)! We’ll be trying this dish soon!

Great idea Monika. My kids loved it!!! Thank you, and happy Spring Break.
Oh my goodness this looks amazing! I love skillet cookies because they stay so moist and chewy – just how I like my cookies – and adding mint to this is genius!
Thanks Shaylee, it’s super yummy!
Looks so Yummmm. I would say the most difficult part is to “..rest for at least one hour” 🙂
You’re so right, but if you think of it as a huge cookie and how gooey a small cookie is when it’s hot, you understand why you have to wait. It’s torture!!!!! Thanks for reading.
Mint chocolate chip is one of my all time favorite flavors! It’s refreshing and just plain delicious. This may go on my menu for next week! Thanks for the recipe.
Hey Allison, we’d love to hear about your skillet cookie. Thanks for stopping by!
I think I need to get a cast iron skillet. I am missing out making some great recipes.
I’m surprised at how often I use my skillet, Beth. They are so nice to have and baking your favorite cookie in one is a super easy dessert!
Yummm…It sounds delicious!! I love chocolate flavor and would love to try this recipe
We hope you will Jasmine, and then let us know what you think. Thank you!
I have never had a mint cookie before, it looks delicious.

My goodness that looks absolutely delicious, a dessert that I would love to have right away. The pictures are mouth watering & the combination of mint, chocolate & other goodies makes this a great treat for sure.
Thank you Lisa!
This is a beautifully made dessert treat. I love how you demonstrated each step with a gorgeous photo. I’m not a fan of mint, but this looks delicious.
I think you’ll find with all the chocolate too, it’s a light mint taste, not too heavy Elizabeth. Thanks and hope you’ll try it!
Oh my it all looks so good! I love making new desserts and trying new things and these looks like the kind of thing I go for when out for a meal! Will be making them
Oh my goodness! These look amazing!
Thanks for looking!!!
Love your blog! I need to bookmark it and check out more recipes! I want to try them!
Hey Dominika, that’s just what we want to hear!!! Thanks so much.
This is so tempting! I’m sure my kids would also love this.
My kids sure did Nicole, thanks. It’s a fun and different way to enjoy a slice of cookie!
This is my favorite! I’m sure my husband would also love this.
Mmmm! I love mint chocolate anything, honestly. This is my dream. Cookie dough (cooked to a fudgey like texture with tiny bit of crisp on the outside) is a favourite dessert. I’m trying to lose weight – this makes me want to quit LOL
Hi Shareen! I love to make a treat and share it with lots of others. It’s perfect party fare!!!!
If only I wasn’t on a no-carbohydrates diet! It looks so delicious that I can’t even look at it without having my mouth watered.
It’s tough Kinga, look around though, we have lots of low carb recipes for you too!
It looks so delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us!
It looks delicious. I love chocolate
Mint chocolate cookies, I would love to pair it with green tea. Will that be a cool combination?
Sonnie recently posted…The Barriers In Your Mind
Yes Sonnie, it would be a lovely combination, especially for those that love tea, (I drink herbal teas), like me!!!!
I have bookmarked this recipe for future reference, haha! I’m not sure if it’ll go well with black iced Café Americano though. What would be the best drink to pair this with? My mom likes to bake so I’ll definitely refer her to this one when she bakes again. I, on the other hand, am called the official “taster” of whatever she makes. Haha.
We like to pair it with a scoop of ice cream or a tall glass of cold milk! I’m sure others prefer coffee or tea though. It’s great with everything, seriously!!!!! Thanks Veeyah
This dish looks amazing. Woah!
It’s at the top of my list. ?
How fun to have you here Elle! This would be a big hit at your table, I promise!!!! xoxo
I LOVE how creative this is! Kudos. I definitely won’t be waiting until next St. Patrick’s Day to whip up one of these for myself lol.
No, definitely don’t wait that long to make it!
yum yum yum! so mouth watering!! I must try this. I just love this. This is super tempting and creative recipe .. Thanks for sharing!!
