There are few things in life as tasty as the simple chocolate chip cookie, but how about giving them an extra kick with a drop of Irish whiskey?
They would become the perfect party snack for sweet-tooth revellers.
Thankfully mantitlement have created a fantastic recipe that provides all the delicious goodness of the mint chocolate chip cookie, along with the added extra, using Jameson Irish whiskey.
Mantitlement state on their site: “I like when you make a recipe that has some sort of booze in it and you can actually taste the booze. Some recipes can stand to be super boozy, some can’t. These Jameson Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are sort of in between. You can definitely pick up the whiskey flavour but it’s still sweet enough to be a cookie.
“These cookies are also really easy to make and I don’t think you can mess them up at all – if you’re afraid to try baking like I am – but they worked out for me so I’m thinking you have a good chance of perfection if you’ve ever put a tray of cookies in the oven before.
“This recipe makes almost 3 dozen cookies so there’s definitely enough if you need to bring them to a party – just don’t forget to grab the whiskey!”
Jameson Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies recipeIngredients
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda

Mantitlement provided the following ten step instructions to get your cookies just right.
1. Whisk the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt together in a bowl and set aside.
2. Add the butter to a small pan and cook on low heat until melted. Pour in the whiskey, stir and let cool.
3. Add the sugars to a large bowl then pour in the cooled butter and whiskey. Beat with a hand mixer for about a minute.
4. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well, then add the vanilla and mint extracts.
5. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the mixed dry ingredients about a cup at a time until just mixed together.
6. With a spoon, fold in the chocolate chips and refrigerate the dough for an hour.
7. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
8. Spray to baking sheets with cooking spray and scoop out the cookies dough using a 1 1/2 tablespoon scooper. Or you can form the dough into golf ball sized balls.
