FRIDAY

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Ingredients

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil we like olive oil
  • 1 egg large
  • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
  • 1 ⅓ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt halve or skip if using salted butter
  • 12 ounces vanilla almond bark
  • 12 starlight peppermints, crushed or leftover candy canes

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl combine cocoa powder, sugar, butter and oil. Beat in egg and vanilla until well combined. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt until a thick dough forms.
  • Use a 2 tablespoon scoop to make dough balls and place evenly on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet. (Should make about 16 cookies). Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes.
  • Allow cookies to cool on the sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • While cookies are cooling, melt the almond bark in a microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring in-between, until melted and smooth. Alternatively, melt in a saucepan on the stove top over low heat, stirring constantly.
  • Dip each cookie halfway into the melted almond bark and immediately sprinkle with crushed peppermint. Place on parchment to set.
