Peppermint Chocolate Crinkle Cookies Recipe
I absolutely love this easy cookie recipe. I’ve made Peppermint Hot Chocolate a million times during the holidays, and it always hits the spot.

How to Make Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
These peppermint chocolate crinkle cookies are just as easy to make as they are to eat! Which is great because you’re going to want to make these every single day leading up to Christmas. Nothing wrong with a bit of holiday indulgence, especially when it tastes this good!
I’ll break this down into a few basic steps (check the recipe card for full instructions):
- Prepare the cookie dough – Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, cream together oil, sugar, and cocoa with an electric mixer. Mix in the eggs (one at a time), then add the vanilla extract. Then add the flour mixture into the wet mixture.
- Refrigerate cookie dough – Spray a container with cooking spray, then pour the dough in. Spray plastic wrap with the cooking spray, then place it over the container, and cover it with a lid. The dough needs to be refrigerated for at least 3 hours, or you can let it sit overnight.
- Before taking the dough out of the fridge – Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Chop up the peppermint baking chips into about half the original size.
- Make the cookies – Roll the chocolate cookie dough into 1 inch balls, then roll the balls into the peppermint chips. Line them up on the cookie sheet and bake 10-11 minutes.
These will last up to 1 week in an airtight container at room temperature, or you can freeze them for a couple of months.

Sure, you can make them any time of year, but they are without a doubt the perfect Christmas cookies.
