A variation on the classic chocolate chip recipe, these cookies have bittersweet chocolate chips and pieces of soft-cut peppermint candy added to them, as well as the traditional semi-sweet. They're quite chocolatey and quite decadent. The peppermint adds an interesting touch.

  • In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt. In a large bowl, stir together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until creamy and smooth. Stir in vanilla; then stir in eggs one at a time, stirring until the mixture is creamy and well incorporated. Gradually stir in the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well between each addition. Stir in the semi-sweet chips, then the bittersweet chips. Mix in the peppermint candy, stirring until evenly distributed. Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 9 to 11 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven; allow cookies to cool momentarily on the sheets before removing them to wire racks to cool completely.

I changed this recipe a little I used 1 cup of those new peppermint chips available in the baking aisle and 1.5 cups of milk choc chips in place of the 2 c semi-sweet and.5 cup of soft peppermint candy all other ingredients remain the same. The cookies are fabulous and I will probably have to make more than one batch! Didn't run at all! Read More

I added 1/2 c cocoa and used a bag of semi-sweet chips and a bag of Andes baking pieces. I baked them for 9 minutes and let them sit on the pan for 4 minutes then cooled on racks. The cookies turned out delicious and didn't last long at all! Read More

I had some soft crushed peppermint sticks I wanted to use up so was happy to find this recipe but it wasn't a favorite. They were easy enough to make but spread more than I liked. Wanted to give them as Christmas gifts but I don't think so. Read More
