SOFT & CHEWY CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT M&M COOKIES

Ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature 
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 (9.9 ounce) bag holiday mint mms 
  • Optional: more mms or crushed peppermint candies

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar on medium-high speed for 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides as needed. Add egg, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract and continue beating until combined. Add m and ms and mix a couple more times on low to incorporate.
  • Use a cookie scoop or spoon to scoop cookie dough 2 inches apart onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Smoosh cookies down with the back of the spoon. Place 3 mms on top or sprinkle crushed peppermint candies over top if desired.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. I bake them for 9 and they still look VERY soft but firm up as they cool. Allow to rest for a couple minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
