If you are looking for a great Christmas treat recipe that your family will love, you must try these Christmas Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies!


These cookies are one of my favorite Christmas recipes!  I made a double batch of these this week and my family had devoured them in less than two days!  I mean, everybody loves a chocolate chip cookie…but this takes it to the next level with a crunchy, refreshing candy cane in it!  Even the 17 year old at our house complimented me on the cookies…and getting a compliment from a 17-year-old girl is not easy!

and the chocolate chips…til it looks a little somethin’ like this (don’t mind my teenager stealing some dough!):

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Prepare a cookie sheet with cooking spray.


Make the cookie dough into one and a half-inch balls and place them on the cookie sheet (I usually fit 12 to a cookie sheet). 


Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until starting to lightly brown on top.  Do not overcook it!  Cool on cooling racks.


I like to make a double batch of peppermint chocolate chip cookies and then put them in gallon-sized freezer bags with a slice of plain bread (it keeps the cookies from drying out). 


These are so delicious with a glass of cold milk!  Put them in your Christmas cookie jar & your family will LOVE them! 


Be sure to set them out on a cute Christmas platter when you have your holiday celebrations!  They also make a great neighbor gift for the holidays!
