Once upon a time, my great friend Alaina brought over a whole heaping amount of Christmas cookies for us one year. This was probably over 13 years ago and we were living in Florida.
Anyway, long story short, Alaina brought over these cookies, I was enraptured and got the recipe from her. Today we’re going to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party at our gym and I thought I’d break out this recipe since its so perfectly Christmas-y AND delicious!
Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
White Chocolate Frosting
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter & sugars together until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs & vanilla.
Combine the flour, cocoa, salt & baking soda. Gradually add to the creamed mixture & mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375F for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely
In a microwave safe bowl, melt vanilla chips in 15 second increments. Cool. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese. Gradually beat in confectioners sugar. Add melted chips, mix well.
Frost cookies; sprinkle with peppermint candies
If you use a larger cookie scoop (like I did) the cookies may need a little longer cooking time.
