12 Days of Cookies Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cookies

Can you believe that we only have few more days left of 12 days of cookies? It seems so long ago that I started this project! I have had such a  great time baking!

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cookies are so good! This was my first time making them. They have a brownie consistency with a hint of peppermint taste. The cookies are soft and delicious!

2/3 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
2 tablespoons marshmallow bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cornstarch, and salt. 20161213_191446
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, egg, and peppermint.

Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Cool on the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


I couldn’t find the marshmallow bits so I didn’t add them to the dough. Instead I topped the cookies with mini marshmallows and a candy cane! I think have been  my favorite out of all the 12 days of cookies so far.
