My holiday baking is now in full swing! I’ve made all of my tried and true Christmas cookies and bread pudding recipes…now it’s time to start experimenting and trying other people’s recipes!
Check out this mouth watering Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe that I found on the Nestle Winter Favorites page on Walmart.com! Aren’t these cookies amazing? I happen to love making a chocolate peppermint pudding pie for the holidays, and I think these would be every bit as tasty – probably even more so!
Peppermint Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
3/4 cup unsalted butter (softened)
3 cups Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels (divided)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3 teaspoons Nescafe Taster’s Choice House Blend 100% Pure Instant Coffee
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 large eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
12 soft peppermint candies (crushed)
Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease or line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Melt butter and 1 cup chocolate morsels in medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until smooth.
Transfer chocolate mixture into a large mixer bowl; add sugar and beat until combined. Add coffee granules, vanilla extract and peppermint extract; beat just until combined. Beat in eggs. Add flour and baking powder, mixing until all is incorporated.
Fold in remaining 2 cups chocolate morsels.
Scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart, using a medium size cookie scoop.
Sprinkle each cookie with a little of the crushed peppermint candies.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set. Allow to cool for about 2 minutes on baking sheet and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
