It's a holly jolly Christmas time of year! And with that being said, there is no better time to make Holiday cookies than this season. I love chocolate + I LOVE peppermint... so why not combine them to be extra festive this season? I recently hosted a Christmas party at my apartment + made these yummy treats.... + they were quite the hit! I promise, your guests will not be disappointed. 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup vegan butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp peppermind extract

2/3 cup cocoa powder

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cup chocolate chunk

1 cup crushed candy cane

To start, preheat the over to 350 degrees and wait for it to heat. Place the butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, + peppermint extract into a bowl and combine and beat ingredients. This should create a light + fluffy mixture.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powered, baking soda + salt. Slowly, add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients until all is combined. Stir the mixture until it creates a dough.

Add in the chocolate chunks + crush peppermint  saving a bit of extra peppermint for the top of the cookies.

Place cookies in a ball on a lined sheet of parchment paper. Sprinkle additional candy cane pieces on top.

Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes + voila!
