Day 1 of LJB Cookie Week… Double Chocolate Peppermint Surprise Cookies

We are excited to kick off our Holiday Cookie Week with this fabulous, scrumptious cookie.  We’ve never met a person who didn’t go wild over these tasty little gems!

Double Chocolate Peppermint Surprise Cookies

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 ½ sticks butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 24 mini peppermint patties , unwrapped and chilled
  • 6 ounces white chocolate, from a bar, not chips
  • ½ cup crushed peppermint candy canes

Using an electric mixer, mix the flour cocoa powder, both sugars, salt and baking soda on low speed.  Add the butter and egg and mix to combine.  Turn out the dough onto plastic wrap, wrap tight and put in the refrigerator to chill about an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Working with 1 Tablespoon of dough at a time, evenly encase each peppermint patty with dough.  Place on jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool.

As cookies are baking, melt white chocolate in the microwave in a small bowl for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until melted.  Using a spoon drizzle the white chocolate over each cookie and immediately top with crushed candy cane.  *** Tip… place a piece of parchment paper under the wire cooling rack when drizzling the chocolate for easy clean up!
