When Peppermint Meets Chocolate

When peppermint meets chocolate good things are bound to happen. That's the case with these White Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Cookies.

With a rich chocolatey peppermint dough, chunks of white chocolate, crushed peppermint pieces and dipped in white chocolate peppermint chips these cookies are somehow cool and warm at the same time. Cool from the peppermint aroma and flavor, while warming with the loved rich and smooth cocoa. I hope each of you get to enjoy and share these with the ones you love this holiday season. Yes I said share. Try not to get too territorial over these....happy baking!


  • 2 c. all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 c. cocoa powder

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 1 c. unsalted butter

  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar

  • 1/2 c. light brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract

  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chunks

  • 1 bag white chocoalte peppermint chips

  • Crushed peppermint pieces


  1. Turn on your oven set to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a seperate bowl combine your flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine and set aside.

  3. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment beat your butter and sugars on low speed scraping the sides of the bowl as you go. At this point you can go ahead and add your eggs and peppermint extract. Remember to continue scraping your bowl.

  4. Next, add in your dry ingredients to your mixer and combine at a low speed. Once combined, add in your white chocolate chunks making sure not to over mix.

  5. Baking time! Scoop and roll your cookies in a ball and place about 4 inches apart from each other to avoid one giant cookie forming in the oven. Unless that's what you want, I wouldn't blame you, sounds pretty awesome. Before throwing these in the oven, roll your dough balls in peppermint pieces (not too many or your cookies may spread more than you want). I made sure only to roll one side of the ball and placed the bare side down so the peppermint peices were facing up on the cookie sheet.

  6. Once that's done these can go in the oven for 10-14 minutes (depending on how large you made them). To check if they're done lightly tap the top of your cookie. If it immediatley sinks in then they might need another minute or two.

  7. Once your cookies have cooled down go ahead and melt your white chocolate peppermint chips. Dunk half of the cookie in the melted chocolate then sprinkly on some more crushed peppermint pieces. Then set on parchment paper to dry.

  8. That's a wrap! I hope you have as much fun making them as you do reaping the rewards of your hard work :) Share your creations with me @thesqueakymixer on instagram and don't forget to try your best to share these!
