When it comes to holiday baking, nothing is better than baking up dozens of cookies.

It doesn’t matter if you are baking with friends and family, or simply spending an afternoon baking by yourself in the kitchen while having a dance party with your dogs (not like that happens over here or anything…) – baking up cookies during the holiday season is my favorite way to infuse my day with extra holiday cheer.

This year I wanted to make a batch of really chewy and extra chocolatey cookies.

Then as I was walking down the aisles at the grocery store, I saw this HUGE display of candy canes.

I knew at that moment, these chewy, soft cookies needed a little zing of peppermint to make them even more Christmas-y.

Peppermint and chocolate are such a natural combination of flavors this time of year, but getting them into the perfect cookie is SO much better than all that peppermint chocolate bark or chocolate dipped candy canes, you know?

The chewy texture of these cookies was the most important element for me. I wanted them to melt in my mouth with every bite, so I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic All Purpose Unbleached White Flour. Not only is this incredible flour milled from high quality wheat, but it also naturally helps the cookies get all big and fluffy. That fluffy texture is what makes these cookies truly indulgent.

You will literally want to melt into a stack of them. I kid you not.

White Chocolate Dipped Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Yield: Makes 1 1/2 to 2 dozen

Prep Time:15 minutes

Cook Time:10 minutes

Total Time:3 hours 30 minutes

A double dose of chocolate with a zing of peppermint makes these cookies just what the holiday season called for!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Organic All Purpose Unbleached White Flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg, room temp
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 4-5 candy canes, crushed

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt until combined. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter for 1 minute on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add sugars and beat on medium high until fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla and peppermint extract until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, beating slowly until combined. Add milk, beating until combined well.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and chill the dough for 3 hours. You can also chill the dough overnight if you want!
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  6. Form approximately 2 Tbsp of dough at a time into balls. Place on baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes until baked on the edges but still soft in the center. Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheets. Transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
  8. Once the cookies are cool, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between each, until melted.
  9. Dip the cookies halfway into the melted white chocolate. Place on parchment paper and sprinkle the white chocolate with crushed candy canes. Let rest in a cool place until set, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

I have to get baking — just reading this recipe and looking at the pictures got my mouth watering. Now I’m hungry! Thanks for sharing the recipe and for the great prizes!
