These triple chocolate peppermint cookies are perfect for your Christmas cookie plate. A rich chocolate cookie is studded with chocolate chips and dunked or drizzled with white chocolate. Festive sprinkles make this cookie extra fun!
These cookies have not one, not two, but three forms of chocolate. I am all about squeezing as much chocolate into as little space as possible!!
How do you make chocolate peppermint cookies?
Start off by sifting together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk them together so they are fully combined.
In the bowl of an electric mixer or large bowl with a handheld mixer combine the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat until light and fluffy and the color has lightened. About 3-5 minutes.
When the butter/sugar mixture has lightened add the eggs one at a time beating on medium speed. Add vanilla and peppermint extract beat mixture for another 2 minutes. Be careful not to add any extra peppermint extract- it is very strong- a little goes a long way!
Slowly add the dry mixture and as the dry mixture is half mixed in add the chocolate.
Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop the batter into balls on a parchment lined baking sheet or plastic container. Chill the cookie dough for at least 2 hours.
When you are ready to bake the cookies preheat oven to 350F and place cookies on a Silpat (affiliate link) lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-12 minutes. Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack.
Melt some white chocolate and a teaspoon of coconut oil together. You can melt in the microwave for 20-second increments or place in a bowl over a pot of simmering water over medium heat ( make sure the bowl does not touch the water). With either method make sure you do not burn, it is very easy to burn melted chocolate.
You can then either dip or drizzle white chocolate over the cookies and place the cookie on the prepared pan then sprinkle with festive sprinkles.
