  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups white chocolate peppermint chunks, divided


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add in the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Using a hand mixer, beat on medium until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla extract. Beat until eggs are incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix in any remaining egg.
  • In a separate bowl, add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and beat until the flour is just worked in.
  • Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the white chocolate peppermint chips.
  • Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cookie dough and place it about 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.
  • Break 1 to 2 pieces of the remaining peppermint chunks in half and push them into the top of the cookie dough. Leave some of the chip peeking out of the dough.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container.
