The ultimate Holiday chocolate cookies are here. Who doesn’t automatically think of cookies and Christmas together? This year I decided to jump on the bandwagon and make some cookies – gingerbread men, sugar cookies, and these amazing chocolate cookies right here.
When I was young, my father’s holiday specialty was chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips and crushed Andes chocolate mints. I wanted to amp it up with a recipe I spotted on Pinterest – but, as a busy mom and with the holidays crazy enough as it is, I took the easy way out. But, not to worry, they taste just as amazing! These Chocolate Chocolate chip (double chocolate!) cookies dipped in Peppermint White Chocolate are just begging to be eaten by the Christmas tree with a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows. So, just like making these cookies, this post will be short and sweet so you can get baking!
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies with Peppermint White Chocolate
Boxed chocolate chip cookie mix
1 large egg
1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 bag white chocolate chips, melted
crushed candy canes
In a medium bowl, whisk together cookie mix and cocoa powder. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and egg until well combined. Add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
Chill dough for at least 1 hour or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
Using a medium cookie scoop, portion dough onto baking sheet (I did 9 cookies per sheet). Bake for approximately 10 mins, or until the middle is set. Cookies will deflate and crinkle a bit upon cooling.
Cool on pans for 5 mins then transfer to to a wire rack to cool completely.
Melt the white chocolate according to bag instructions (usually, heat 30 seconds at a time, stirring until smooth) and add in peppermint extract, stirring until well integrated.
Dip halfway in white chocolate, dragging the cookie to get a good coating.
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Allow to set, about 1-2 hours.
