Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are a soft and chewy chocolate peppermint cookie that gets drizzled with white and dark chocolate and is topped with crushed candy canes.  These are fun and festive!

I feel like I have cookies coming out of my ears at my house.  My three year old loves to be in the kitchen with me and she especially loves to be in the kitchen with me.  She has had a lot of practice making cookies with me this holiday season and is actually quite the good helper!  She scoops the cookie dough out for me into a perfect compact ball and releases it onto the baking sheet.  It is so much fun hanging out with me and I love that she enjoys cooking as much as I do!

Whenever I deliver cookies to the neighbors, I love them to be fun and festive.  And these cookies are just that!  The chocolate cookie is chewy with a hint of peppermint and they look so pretty drizzled with chocolate and topped with crushed candy canes.

These cookies turned out amazing and it was so much fun making them with my little girl.  I know that you guys will love these cookies just as much as we did.  They are the perfect addition to that Christmas goodie plate!

  1. Made these and they are delicious. I only used 1/2 the amount of melted chocolate which seemed plenty for the 32 cookies I made.
    The chocolate hardens somewhat quickly so they are a little messy with crushed peppermint as it did not all stick.
    But nummy and simple to make
