Peppermint Patty Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm not sure why but I always seem to crave peppermint in the dead of winter.  It doesn't really make much sense since peppermint is cooling but I often don't make any sense (my husband would agree - hahaha ).  All kidding aside - here are some more peppermint recipes that I have previously shared on this blog (click on each title to view the entire post with printable recipe):

1 cup peppermint patties chopped
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup butter (softened)
2 cups flour (possible a couple extra tablespoons of flour - see below)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter & sugars.  Add the eggs & vanilla beat until combined.  With a wooden spoon stir in the flour, baking soda & salt until flour is totally blended into the dough.  Add the chopped peppermint patties & the chocolate chips - stir until the chocolate chips & chunks are evenly spread out through the dough.  Depending on how gooey the peppermint patty filling is will determine if you need to add a little extra flour.  If the dough is extremely sticky then add 1 to 2 tablespoons extra flour.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (or butter/spray the sheet), drop tablespoon size dollops of dough onto the baking pan evenly spread out & bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 9 to 10 minutes (do not let the cookie get too dark!!  If you burn just a little then the melted peppermint patty will become like hard candy).

  1. I just made 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies the other day and I wish I had seen this before then because peppermint patties would definitely have made them even better. :)
