Chewy Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
These peppermint cookies are just so beautiful, I could cry. *sniff* Yes, I’m dramatic about my love of peppermint. This is a new Christmas cookie recipe for me this year. I have my moms list of cookies that we made every single year, but I am always looking out for more Christmas cookie recipes to make. I love handing out tins of homemade cookies to people as a thank you gift. These peppermint cookies are easy to make and even easier to enjoy. I might even make these year round. Don’t judge.

How to Make Chewy Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar. [Note: I love this set of mixing bowls with grips.]
Add in the egg and vanilla and beat well.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder. Add it into the sugar mixture and mix until combined well.
Use a cookie scoop to drop cookie dough onto cookie sheets and bake for about 8-10 minutes.
Cool the cookies completely.
Melt the white chocolate per package directions and dip each cookie into the chocolate until coated halfway.
Put 2 candy cane sprinkles on the white chocolate and sprinkle crushed candy canes around on the chocolate. Let harden.
Enjoy! I bet you can’t eat just one peppermint cookie. Check out more Christmas goodies here.
