Soft and Chewy Peppermint Mocha Cookies
This Christmas cookie recipe for Peppermint Mocha Cookies is chocolate, peppermint, and a dash of coffee! A perfect way to celebrate the holidays.
Alright guys, we have another cookies recipe for you. I told you Christmas is all about cookies. So glad January is all about dieting because I’m gonna need some help getting back on track! We showed you how to host a cookie exchange a couple of weeks ago and we shared our Caramel Macchiato cookies recipe. For the same party we also made our Cranberry and Pistachio cookies and these Peppermint Mocha cookies. They are the perfect mix of peppermint, chocolate, and coffee!
I think my favorite thing about this recipe is how soft and chewy these cookies are…well that and they are so easy to make. I have had so many cookies to make for the holidays that I’ll take whatever help I can get, so these cookies start with a mix. It is just a basic chocolate cookie mix that I made it my own by adding peppermint, coffee, and a chocolate drizzle.
Now, I’m all about my coffee but if you aren’t a coffee drinker don’t be turned off by the fact that is in this recipe. Coffee pairs really well with chocolate and brings out the rich chocolaty flavor. Add that to a little peppermint extract and a sprinkle of peppermint crumbles and you have an amazing cookie! These cookies were totally addictive! I ate way more than I should but it was worth it.
