Christmas Cookie Guide: Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Cookie #Recipe

Once upon a Christmas, I finally made my first ever Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Cookie. And, I'll now be making this recipe each and every season! This was my favorite recipe from all our test batches for the Christmas Cookie Guide!


This batch will be thick and bakes a several dozen cookies - perfect for packaging up for friends, teachers and family! I used Andes Peppermint Baking Chips which really sealed the deal on this recipe. I sought these out for weeks, and am so glad I didn't compromise and use a different peppermint chip!

The peppermint is ideal for the season, a few chunks for the chocolate lover, but still not too much chocolate.

This cookie is so good it may even make Scrooge feel a bit festive.
In fact, we'll be leaving these for Santa this year!! Hopefully he'll enjoy them as much as this mama :)


Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Cookies

yields 7-8 dozen cookies
adapted by Double Dipped Life

Ingredients

4 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2 teas baking soda

1/2 teas. salt

2 cups butter, softened

1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 small packages of INSTANT chocolate pudding

4 eggs

1 teas vanilla

1 cup of your chocolate chunks
1/2 cup Andes Peppermint Baking Chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.



In a very large bowl or stand mixer cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended, and then add in the eggs and vanilla.
 Slowly add in the flour mixture. 

Last, fold in the chocolate chunks and Andes Peppermint Baking Chips. Warning: Dough will be very thick. Be prepared to do some hand mixing! 

Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes

Suggested (but optional) Baking Tip: Roll dough and refrigerator overnight so as to create slice and bake cookies. Let dough sit out for 10 minutes then slice and bake for 10-12 minutes just as you would with the original recipe. We preferred this method over drop cookies as it allows you to show off those chocolate chunks and peppermint pieces!


Just one last post for the Christmas Cookie Guide!! See you Monday!
