Hot Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 3-1/2 dozen
These were great! Easy to make too! The dough was a bit dry like the other reviews said but I added about 2 tablespoons of water and it was fixed! Will definitely be making these again
These cookies were a disappointment. They were dry, way too much peppermint extract in the recipe, and the crushed mints on top were just too much - definitely only for looks!
The recipe, as is, produces a very dry/crumbly cookie. To save this batch of cookies, I added 1/2 a cup of sugar, 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil, and 1-2 tbsp of water to the above recipe and remixed. When putting the cookie dough on the cookie sheet, I flattened the dough with the flat bottom of a juice glass. (Not sure if this was necessary, but it gave a more uniform/round cookie.) I then cooked them for 10 minutes instead of 12 minutes. They came out like a regular sugar cookie-- moist and not cracked.
Made these for Christmas, gave as gifts to neighbors and family. They are really good. The only thing I did differently was to use white and chocolate icing because my husband insisted the marshmallow creme would be to sticky. I didn’t fight to hard for the creme because I am not a fan of marshmallows in the first place. That said, they were a big hit with the family. Will make them again and try using the marshmallow creme.
Very good flavor. More chocolate than hot chocolate. Pretty for gifting. a cakey cookie
These were really good. Very messy on the cookie sheet but very tasty. I accidentally forgot to add the peppermint extract into the cookie mix, so I added it into the marshmallow fluff instead and that worked great. Plus they are a very festive looking Christmas cookie. :) Oh, also my kids had a lot of fun crushing the peppermint candies into powder for the tops of the cookies.
These were good and easier than I thought they would be.
I thought the cookies were really dry. I would not make them again.
I just made these. I was excited to try them because I love peppermint hot chocolate and to combine that taste in a cookie was something I had to try. I was disappointed right away when the cookie dough seemed a little on the dry side and sure enough when they were done baking the cookies turned out a little crumbly. While they taste alright the process was just too messy and time consuming for us to want to make again. The presentation of them looks pretty though, so they have that going for them.
