Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookie Recipe

Have you ever noticed there are not many cookie recipes on Call Me PMc?

I’m super picky about cookies and I have only been completely over-the-moon with one cookie recipe. It’s my super secret Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. It’s my fall-back get rich cookie recipe so I haven’t been compelled to share it yet. I’m saving it for a ‘rainy day’ or when we need to make the mortgage payment or pay for college. (Of course, I’m being sarcastic, but it is good great!)

But, guess what?!

I love this Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookie Recipe just as much.

And, I’m not keeping it a secret.

What makes a good cookie?

  1. I like oversized cookies because then you can say, “I just had one cookie”. Really, you don’t have to reveal it was the size of a plate!
  2. They have to be soft in the center.
  3. And crispy on the edges.
  4. And preferably warm.

So without further adieu I give to you my Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookie Recipe

Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookie Recipe


Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 17 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4 dozen

Using a large scoop, I had 26 cookies. If you make them small (regular size), you'll have about 4 dozen.

Use 2 cookie sheets. Allow the cookie sheet to cool off before placing second batch of dough on them. Never place cookie dough on a hot sheet.


  • 1 and 1/4 c butter, softened
  • 2 c white, granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 c cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 c Andes peppermint crunch chips


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  • In another bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually add this to the butter mixture.
  • Stir in chips by hand.
  • The mixture will be THICK.
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Chill in refrigerator 10 minutes.
  • I used a regular sized ice cream scoop for extra large cookies.
  • Drop dough onto a greased, cold cookie sheet.
  • Bake 17 minutes at 350 degrees for crisp edges and gooey centers.
  • Remove from oven and allow cookies to sit on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing.
  • After 2 minutes, using a thin spatula, move to a wire rack to cool.

      Thanks for sharing, I’m addicted to these cookies, making another batch today with the boys.
