Raise your hand if you love chocolate! 🙋🏻♀️
I’m obsessed with chocolate desserts like my favorite OREO Dirt Cake, Chocolate Fudge Pie, and Chocolate Chess Pie so when I start to think about my holiday baking you know my head goes to chocolate first!
Do you know when you taste something and it’s soooooo good that you pretty much feel all self-control melting away? That’s me and these Peppermint Chocolate Crinkle cookies.
This is an ever so slight variation on my go-to Chocolate Crinkle Cookie recipe but the addition of the peppermint flavor makes this one of my favorite cookies ever! These cookies are super soft and fudgy-it’s hard to eat just one!

Tips for best results
- You HAVE to chill the dough for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. You’ll never be able to roll it into balls if you don’t, it’s way too sticky.
- Even after chilling it will still be pretty sticky-I recommend coating your hands in powdered sugar before you even attempt to touch it, it makes a lightyear’s difference in handling the dough.
- Once you place the dough on the cookie sheet there is no need to press down, they will shape themselves as they bake.
- Be sure oven is thoroughly preheated to ensure they cook properly and are not doughy after baking.
