To be honest, peppermint is not my favorite flavor. But this holiday season, I decided to test it out in a way that would not be overpowering. Enter, the vegan chocolate peppermint cookies!
I used the exact same chocolate cookie as my Chocolate Crinkle Cookie recipe. Super minimal, yet effective.
If you are not a huge peppermint fan like myself, you know how wrong too much peppermint can go. I debated adding peppermint extract to the dough itself, but honestly, the peppermint candies are the perfect amount. You can still taste all the yummy and moist chocolate, and get a nice crunch and subtle peppermint flavor.
