These White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Chocolate Cookies are dreamy to say the least! I made a white version a few years ago and wanted to share a chocolate version also, and finally here there are!
After 3 batches of these I finally found the perfect ratio of ingredients with a rich chocolate flavor, just enough peppermint, and a deliciously chewy texture.
I started out with a recipe that I found on Food Network then changed it until they were perfect for my taste. I reduced the butter but 1/4 cup because several people were saying in the comments that their cookies just spread into one – which is likely due to a bit too much butter.
With the first batch I used Dutch processed cocoa like the recipe calls for but my cookies came out super thin so I switched to regular cocoa powder. I also found that 3/4 cup cocoa wasn’t enough chocolate flavor so I upped it by 1/4 cup then cut back on the flour.
Now they’ve got well pronounced chocolate flavor which pairs well with the white chocolate coating. Here I also replaced some of the granulated sugar with brown for a chewier cookie.
And last but not least I wanted a white chocolate dipped peppermint cookie so I replaced 1 tsp of the vanilla with peppermint extract, and finished them off with a generous dose of white chocolate (think cookies and cream), then sprinkled them with some pretty peppermint bits.
Theseare Christmas + chocolate perfection! Another must-try cookie to add to the holiday baking list!

Such a delicious flavor combination! You get decadent chocolate cookies mixed with the real peppermint flavor, and they’re finished with a layer of sweet and creamy white chocolate. So good that they’ll likely become a new holiday tradition!
