Peppermint & Chocolate  Christmas Cookies

Peppermint & Chocolate  Christmas Cookies

Thick and fudgy, these peppermint chocolate cookies are perfect for the holiday season!

In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together then set these dry ingredients aside.

In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and creamy.

Add in the egg and vanilla extract and peppermint extract and beat on medium speed until combined.

Add in the dry ingredients and chocolate chips, then chill the dough for an hour.  Roll into balls and bake.

Once the cookies hot from the oven, use the cutter or glass and place it over the hot cookie, then swirl it gently around the cookie. This will help form it into a perfect circle.

When the cookies have cooled, take one at a time and dip half the cookie into the white chocolate.

Sprinkle with crushed candy canes and let the white chocolate set.

These delicious cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
