Peppermint Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Another delicious cookie recipe for your holidays. Nothing beats chocolate and peppermint with these Peppermint Chocolate Cookies. Based off of a traditional crinkle cookie, this is a delicious and addicting cookie.

Peppermint Chocolate Cookies


  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon peppermint extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 peppermint candy canes (crushed)


Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2
In a bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Set aside
Step 3
Using an electric mixer, beat together the cocoa powder, white sugar and vegetable oil until it creates a shiny, gritty dough. It won't be smooth, that's ok.
Step 4
Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing for 30 seconds with each addition to make sure it is well incorporated. Add the vanilla extract and peppermint extract.
Step 5
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix on low speed until combined. Do not beat.
Step 6
Form into balls and place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Top with crushed peppermint candy canes. Press down slightly so candy is pressed into dough.
Step 7
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool before serving.
