Peppermint Brownie Cookies

How to make them (with how-to photos)

Over a medium sized sauce pan, in lowest heat, melt chocolate and butter, stirring occasionally

In a separate bowl, mix flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt

Over a mixing bowl with a whisk attachment combine eggs, granulated sugar, light brown sugar and peppermint extract, and whisk on high speed for 4-5 minutes, until light and fluffy

Reduce speed and beat in the chocolate mixture for 1 minute

Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Do not overbeat!

Fold in chocolate chips, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour

Preheat oven to 350 F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a 1.5 Tablespoon cookie scoop, form cookies and place them on prepared parchment paper 2.5 inches apart. The dough will be very sticky!

Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and if cookies are irregular, use a circular cookie cutter slightly bigger than your cookies and make a circular motion to swirl the cookies around inside the cookie cutter.

This needs to be done when the cookies are still warm! let cool for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
Let cookies sit in baking sheet for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Peppermint Brownie Cookies Process

Using a piping bag, drizzle cookies with white chocolate and sprinkle with peppermint candy

Tips and tricks

  • Before you start, take eggs out of the fridge 30-45 minutes before use; this will help ingredients mix more evenly and you’ll get better volume when whipping them.
  • If pressed on time, allow eggs to sit -completely covered- in warm (not hot) water for 10-15 minutes
  • If cookies have irregular sizes, use a circular cookie cutter slightly bigger than your cookies and make a circular motion to swirl the cookies around inside the cookie cutter. This needs to be done when cookies are right out of the oven to ensure they’re still malleable
  • You can use a spatula to transfer cookies to avoid breaking them

    Perfect balance of peppermint and chocolate. Crinkly, picturesque tops and is like peppermint bark as a cookie. I didn’t use any milk chocolate and only used 72% cacao and semi-sweet chips and it turned out rich and chocolately. I also did not have white chocolate, so i used semi-sweet and it was still amazing. Great recipe!
