Hello, my name is Debbie and I am addicted to peppermint chocolate treats. I last had this heavenly combination ..well ummmm … I am eating a cookie as I type. I need something to keep my strength up, LOL!! Seriously , I can not get enough of this Christmas wonderful. Maybe I need an intervention but It is festive and it makes me so happy. My kids are rolling their eyes at another chocolate peppermint cookie.
The inspiration for this cookie came while I was Christmas shopping on black Friday and got a Peppermint Mocha to sip on . My first thought was “I need to figure out how to make this at home”. My next thought was ” This would make a fantastic cookie” . I decided to go super easy and use a cake mix and used leftover morning coffee but you can always make some instant coffee . I also found some seasonal ghirardelli peppermint chunks in the baking section. If these are not available to you on the candy aisle you can get the white chocolate peppermint bark and cut it in pieces. This chewy cake like cookie is to die for . Now All I need is a Peppermint Mocha to go with it!!
This starts off super easy using a cake mix!
Dump all the ingredients except the baking chips into a bowl and mix well.
Fold in both Baking chips
I always bake cookies on parchment paper and use cookie scoops. Scoop about a table at a time on a cookie sheet
Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes and then cool on a cooling rack.
These are perfect for gift giving!!
Put on a platter and watch them disappear!!
