Chocolate Peppermint Blossoms

Day 19 – Christmas Cookie Style

Chocolate Peppermint Blossoms - #25DaysCookieStyle

In case you missed yesterday’s ‘Day 17 & 18 Cookie’ post for Rhonda’s Famous Sugar Cookies CLICK HERE!  or Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies, CLICK HERE!  Today’s {NEW} cookie recipe is Chocolate Peppermint Blossoms.

I happened to have some extra Peppermint Hershey Kisses on hand from my Gingerbread House Decorating Party from a few weeks ago.  I thought this would be the perfect cookie to make with them.  Even if you are not a fan of peppermint – you can easily swap the flavor of Hershey’s Kiss or even make them without a Hershey’s Kiss.  The cookie on it’s own has a great chocolate flavor.

These tasty goodies went straight out of our home to my husband’s work.  They were the official taste testers for this particular recipe.

Last Year’s Flashback Recipe:  Cherry Date Cookies.  These are soft and chewy — plus the Wheaties cereal gives it a nice crunch! Click on photo at bottom of post for a direct link to this recipe!

As a reminder, all the posts I will be using the hashtag #25DaysCookieStyle.  If you happen to make any of the cookie recipes, tag me on social media and use this hashtag.  I’d love to see all of your holiday baking photos from your home!

Happy Baking!

Chocolate Peppermint Blossoms
Serves: 40 cookies
  • ½ cup butter, softened (1 stick)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅔ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 40 Hershey’s Peppermint Kisses
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream together butter, both sugars, egg, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Add baking powder, baking soda, salt and mix well. Add cocoa powder and mix until combined.
  3. Slowly add flour and mix just until combined. Using a cookie scoop, scoop tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate peppermint kiss into the center of each cookie. Cool on a wire rack.

Tip #1:  Roll balls of dough in white sugar prior to baking for another alternative look to the cookie. 

Tip #2:  Not a fan of peppermint?  Swap with a regular flavor Kiss or don’t use any Kisses at all!  This cookie is tasty just on it’s own!

  1. I made similar cookies this year too! I used peppermint extract in the dough so it made for a lot of peppermint flavor! They are so cute and festive with the striped peppermint Hershey kiss :)

  2. Yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yum! Never say no to peppermint, especially in December. :)
