Beginner 1-2 Hours

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Wilton Peppermint extract
  • 1/4 cup Wilton Peppermint Crunch, plus 2 tablespoons for garnish
  • 1/2 package (6 ounces) Wilton Bright White Candy Melts Candy, melted according to package instructions

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare cookie pans with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

  3. In medium microwave-safe container, combine butter and bittersweet chocolate. Microwave at half (50%) power 1 minute; stir. Microwave on 50% power in 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until chocolate and butter are melted. Stir thoroughly until mixture is smooth and let cool 5 minutes.

  4. In large bowl, beat chocolate mixture, sugar, eggs, vanilla and peppermint extracts with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined, about 1 minute. Gradually add flour mixture, scraping down bottom and sides of bowl as necessary, beating until flour is just combined. Stir in 1/4 cup Peppermint Crunch. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie pans, spacing 2" apart.

  5. Bake 9-12 minutes, or until cookies crack on top. Remove from oven and let cool on pan 5 minutes. Remove to cooling grid and let cool completely.

  6. Drizzle cookies with melted candy. Immediately sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons peppermint crunch. Refrigerate until candy is set, about 5 minutes, or allow to stand at room temperature until candy is set.

  7. Makes about 2-1/2 dozen cookies.

JOANN HACKS:

  • Note: parchment paper used for baking can be re-used for drizzling cookies. If paper is greasy, turn over to other side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious on its own Last week, I made a test batch of delicious peppermint crunch cookies! The peppermint extract was strong, and it greatly enhanced the flavor. I don’t have to add anything else to this recipe. All you have to do is use what you have in your pantry. For me, I used crushed peppermints and melted white chocolate. The cookies still taste good as a result.
