Chewy Peppermint Mocha Cookies

Your favorite coffeehouse drink in a cookie form, peppermint, chocolate with a touch of coffee to give you a cozy feeling.
When I hear about anything with peppermint and/or chocolate I always think of the holidays.  They have out anything peppermint with chocolate.
Personally, peppermint and chocolate its not my favorite flavor combo but this was requested by my niece and nephews who love peppermint and chocolate together. They get the chocolate covered mints every time we go out to dinner.


This post I had my little helper again, my niece. She was so excited when I asked her if she wanted to help make these cookies.
What is your favorite Christmas or holiday flavor? Let me know in the comments.

Soft Peppermint Mocha Cookies

Time 

Prepping: 10 to 15 minutes
Chilling: at least 3 hours or overnight (recommended)
Baking: 8 to 10 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
3 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour
1 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 cup Granulated Sugar
2/3 cup Baking Cocoa Powder
2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, melted 
1 cup White Chocolate Chips
1 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
1/2 teaspoon Pure Peppermint Extract
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
4 eggs, room temperature 
1 tablespoon Brewed Coffee, optional

Dipping Chocolate
2 1/2 cups White Chocolate Chips
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
Sprinkles, for decoration
Crushes Candy Candy, for decoration

1. In a medium size bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a microwave safe bowl, melt 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips for 1 to 2 minutes in 30 second intervals. Let it cool slightly.
2. In a large bowl on high speed, cream together brown sugar, granulated sugar and butter for 5 minutes. Add vanilla extract, peppermint extract, brewed coffee and cooled melted chocolate.
3. Lower the speed of your mixture and slowly add into third of the cocoa flour mixture then two eggs. Add in the second-third of the flour then the last two eggs.
4. Toss white chocolate and milk chocolate into the last third of flour then flour into batter. Cover then chill for at least 3 hours, I recommend having the dough chill overnight for a better peppermint flavor. If chilling overnight, take cookie dough out at least 1 hour until baking.
5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Scoop cookie dough out with a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop or two scoops. Make sure they are at least 1-inch apart. Bake for 9 minutes, rotating halfway through.
6. Let cookies cool on pan for 5 minutes before removing to wired rack. Let them cool completely before dipping.
7. In another microwave safe bowl, melt two cups of white chocolate chips and tablespoon of coconut oil. Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes in 30 second intervals. Stir every 30 seconds.
8. If children are decorating, make sure to have adult supervision the chocolate will be hot when dipping. Dip each cookie into chocolate then place onto parchment paper. Sprinkle on crushed candy canes or sprinkles as you place the cookies back on the parchment for the sprinkles to stick. Let set for 15 to 20 minutes before enjoying.
