Peppermint Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Peppermint Brownie CookiesTime to put polkagrisar into good use and turn them into chocolate cookies! I adapted the recipe from the delightfully named baking blog Bake Me Away – BMA’s Jessica, in turn, adapted her recipe from Joy the Baker, so this recipe is a textbook example of how bakers just can’t leave well enough alone. ;-)



Peppermint Chocolate Brownie Cookies


225 g bittersweet chocolate (70% cocoa solids)

45 g unsalted butter

1 cup sugar

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup crushed peppermint candy (not too finely – it does melt!)


Melt the chocolate and butter on top of a double boiler. Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together sugar and eggs.

Add in the chocolate & butter mixture and mix well.

Mix in the rest of the ingredients: vanilla and peppermint extracts, flour, baking powder, salt, and peppermint candy.

Cover and refrigerate the dough for about an hour.

Preheat oven to 170 C. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls (yay for cookies scoops!) and place on the cookie sheet, leaving a few inches between the balls. (You can fit about 12 per sheet)

Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Let cool.

Devour. Store cookies you did not devour in an airtight container to keep them soft.

Makes 36 delectably delicious cookies.
