Chewy Chocolate Cookies


Since we are in the middle of a big remodel, it is nice to take a break and just make cookies, it brings us all together and is a welcome break!

When it comes to treats, for me it has to be chocolate

Chewy Chocolate Cookies with Peppermint Chips!

2 cups + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
¾ cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder ( I used Special Dark)
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2½ sticks or 1 1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup+  Andes peppermint chips (these are seasonal, check by the holiday baking supplies) or  Peppermint kisses (placed in the center of cookie after baked!)

Preheat the oven to 350°

In a medium sized bowl whisk the the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt  together, and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium speed beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, roughly 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until combined, then reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add in the flour mixture. Beat until just combined.  (To avoid a HUGE flour cloud in your kitchen.. try draping your mixer with a large hand towel, to cover the side of the bowl with just enough room for the flour mixture bowl to sit at the front and slowly add the flour in.  – hope that makes sense, it makes a huge difference!  Just be careful when removing the towel it will have flour on it!)  Add the chips, and stir til just combined.

At this point you can form the dough into a disk and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about an hour until firm.

Scoop cookies out onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes then remove from the cookie sheet and cool completely.

Chewy Chocolate cookies recipe

At Christmas, I am willing to add additional flavors to my chocolate, like peppermint for example. Who doesn’t like a chocolate mint cookie? At least I am hoping that I am not the only one.


These simple chewy chocolate cookies are great for any time of year but by adding just a touch of peppermint you have a great Christmas treat. Adapted slightly from Martha’s recipe!

    I just got done making the dough and it is delicious! Somehow I am always out of eggs so I used applesauce as a sub. Making it with white chocolate chips too!

  2. Betsy says

    Making these for a hot cocoa party!! Added mini marshmallows and they are DELICIOUS!!! Taste just like hot cocoa but in cookie form!!!! Yummy!!

    As far as putting them on the baking sheet…should I roll the dough into balls or are they drop cookies. The tops look like some ball cookies that I’ve made so I thought I’d ask just to make sure.

    • Cass says

      I usually use a cookie scoop, so I would say roll it into balls, but just dropping it on the cookie sheet should work, too.

    This is a fantastic recipe, but it does make A LOT of cookies! I can’t remember how many I ended up with since I made them a month or so ago. I used semisweet chocolate chips but I plan on making them again in a week or so and will try white chocolate chips. Thanks!

    I just made this dough (without the mint chips) and sneaked a taste; it’s wonderful! My dough was really soft and sticky though, I’m not sure how it’s possible to make this into a disc. I just left it in the bowl to chill for an hour. I hope my 3 year old can wait that long to make them!! :)

    OMG! Pinned this recipe yesterday and made yoday. Used chocolate chips and walnuts. They are crisp and chewy, at the same time. Chocolate overload, which is a good thing. Would be great with any flavor chips. New go to recipe! :)
