 Ingredients List

  • 2/3 c (80g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly)
  • 1/3 c (27g) cocoa powder (measured correctly)
  • ½ tsp (2g) baking powder
  • ½ tsp (1g) cornstarch
  • 1/8 tsp (1g) salt
  • 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • ½ tsp (3mL) peppermint extract
  • ½ c (110g) light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp (28g) miniature chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp (5g) mallow bits (such as Kraft)


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, egg, and peppermint extract. Stir in the brown sugar, smearing out any clumps along the side of the bowl. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated. Fold in the miniature chocolate chips and half of the mallow bits.

3. Drop the cookie dough into 12 rounded scoops on the prepared baking sheet, and flatten slightly. Press the remaining mallow bits into the tops. Bake at 350°F for 9-11 minutes. Cool on the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
