Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies

I love going into grocery stores this time of year, because I get to stock up on all the different varieties of baking chips that you can only seem to find during the holiday season.

For my second batch of Christmas cookies, I decided to make these Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies, using Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips.

The rich, dark chocolate and crisp, peppermint flavors combine to create a delicious cookie that tastes like Christmas.

~Enjoy~




Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cups baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (10 ounce) package Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla extract; mix well.

Gradually add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Mix until well combined.
