These Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are perfect for your holiday parties. The sweetness of the chocolate combined with the peppermint give them a refreshing mouth feel. The stark contrast between the dark brown chocolate cookie and the snow white sugar is visually stimulating. They truly are finger licking good.
One trick we learned from My Darling Vegan is to dip the cookies in granulated sugar before the powdered sugar. Somehow, that creates a barrier between the moist cookie dough and the powdered sugar so it doesn’t melt into the dough. Very ingenious.
PLAN AHEAD: The dough needs to be refrigerated for 4 hours before you can bake it. Or, you can also put the dough in the freezer for 1 hour if you’re short on time. We discovered this trick when we forgot to plan ahead while making these cookies with our niece. Necessity is the mother of invention 🙂
