Give your cookies a holiday twist, and make these Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies this year! The cookies are soft and chewy with chocolate chips and peppermint chips. They are perfect for cookie platters or keep them for yourself to enjoy through the holiday season.
These might not look like anything but chocolate chip cookies but those peppermint chips add so much flavor – they are seriously our favorite cookies!
One of the many things I love about chocolate chip cookies is that there are about a gazillion ways to switch them up to create something new. For the holidays, there’s no better twist than these chocolate chip cookies with peppermint chips.
You probably already know peppermint and chocolate is a great combo, and they work perfectly together in these soft and chewy cookies. I mean, is it really the holidays if you don’t make chocolate chip cookies with candy canes? I can tell you it’s not at our house. It’s a requirement.
If you’ve been looking for a fantastic cookie to try this year, these candy cane cookies should definitely be on your list. I think you’re going to love them!
Notes Before You Start!
The dough requires chilling, so plan before you make the cookies. Chilling the dough for at least two hours is the key to making cookies that don’t overspread and have the best texture.
You can make the dough a day in advance and bake the cookies the next day. They will taste great.
I use my stand mixer to make the dough, but a hand mixer works just as well, too.
