Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cake Cookies Recipe

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cake Cookies Recipe

Baking Christmas cookies is one of my favorite activities during the holiday season. I always bake all my favorite recipes and then try out a couple of new cookies too. I particularly enjoy whipping up many different types of cake mix cookies. To make some festive and tasty cookies for the Christmas season, I made some dark chocolate peppermint cake cookies using dark chocolate cake mix and peppermint candy canes.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. Combine the cocoa powder and corn starch in a small bowl.
  3. Beat together the softened butter, eggs, and water in a large bowl.
  4. Crush the candy canes.
  5. Add the crushed candy canes to the butter mixture. Stir.
  6. Slowly add the cake mix to the butter mixture. Combine thoroughly.
  7. Drop teaspoons of the cookie dough into the cocoa powder mixture.
  8. Roll the dough ball in the cocoa powder until thoroughly covered.
  9. Form the cocoa powder-covered dough into a ball.
  10. Place the cocoa powder-covered dough ball on an ungreased cookie sheet. Leave 2 inches between the dough balls.
  11. Bake the cookies for 9 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
  12. Allow the baked cookies to rest for a minute before removing from the cookie sheet.
  13. Store the dark chocolate peppermint cake cookies in an airtight container.
