2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 extra large eggs at room temperature (or 3 large eggs)
2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 lb mint - flavored chips

Preheat oven to 350 F. Melt mint chips over a double boiler (or in the microwave), and pour into a large container. Place in refrigerator to set.

Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy (if using an electric mixer, use paddle attachment).

Add the vanilla, then the eggs 1 at a time and mix well. Add the cocoa and mix again. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the chocolate with the mixer on low speed until just combined.

Remove now-hardened mint block from refrigerator. Roughly chop into large pieces. Fold the mint chips into the dough.

Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a 1 3/4 inch ice cream scoop or a rounded tablespoon. Dampen your hands and flatten the dough slightly. Bake for exactly 15 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone).

Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
