Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies PinThese 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 🙂

Instructions
Let's Cook the Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place the granulated sugar and the powdered sugar in 2 separate bowls.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone mat (Silpat) on top of the sheet.
  4. Remove the chilled dough and roll into small balls about 1 tablespoon each.
  5. Roll each ball first in the granulated sugar and then in the powdered sugar and place on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 12-13 minutes. The cookies should be slightly under baked. Allow to cool 2-3 minutes on the sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack. The cookies should have a soft, chewy center with a little crispiness on the outside.
