White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Chocolate Cookies are the perfect Christmas cookie! A delicious double chocolate chip cookie is dipped in white chocolate and crushed candy canes are sprinkled on top. Perfect for Christmas cookie exchanges, parties, packages and so much more!
This is the best time of year for baking! What is your favorite treat to bake? I LOVE baking Christmas Cookies! It’s a fun activity to do with my family and then enjoy together and give to friends and neighbors. These White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Chocolate Cookies are some of the best cookies I’ve ever made! My kids are obsessed with these and even wanted them for breakfast the other day!
Although it seems a little fancy, it’s actually very easy to make! And you can make the cookie dough ahead of time by either freezing it for a month or so or just keep it in the fridge for a couple of days. Then when you are ready to make these cookies just bake it up, dip in white chocolate and sprinkle with crushed candy canes or peppermint candies. Since it’s not quite Christmas time I couldn’t find candy canes at the grocery store so I used thepeppermintint candies. Either works great!
How pretty are these cookies?! The contrast in colors is beautiful and the taste is amazing! I love this chocolate cookie recipe and have made it for years. A little peppermint extract is added and it’s so tasty! Then you just dip the cookies in melted white chocolate and crushed peppermint candy/candy canes and it’s ready to be enjoyed!
This is also a wonderful cookie to package and include in a gift basket. I was sent some fun products from Nielsen-Massey and McCrea’s Candies and you are going to want to enter my giveaway at the bottom of this post so you can win the same thing! (Giveaway is now closed) I’ll talk more about it later on but these caramels are the best and I love the products from Nielsen-Massey. The Pure Peppermint Extract is the quality you want for baking (like in today’s recipe!) and the Pure Vanilla Sugar is flavorful and goes well with so many baking recipes.
This is now one of my favorite cookie recipes! I know you will love it!
Enjoy! Sometimes I like to use half unsweetened cocoa powder and half dark chocolate cocoa powder to give the cookies a darker color.
White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Chocolate Cookies
For the Cookies:
For the Coating
You can use white chocolate chips, just be extra careful when melting it because I find it can be trickier to work with then better quality white chocolate bars. I've found that when microwaving it you don't want it to get too hot. So be sure to follow the instructions in the recipe carefully.
