White Chocolate Peppermint Dipped Chocolate Cookies
1 cup of flour
½ cup of cocoa powder
½ cup of white sugar
2/3 cup of brown sugar
¾ teaspoon of baking soda
1 stick of butter
at room temperature
¼ teaspoon of salt
10 ounces of white chocolate melting wafers
½ cup of crushed peppermints
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and add some parchment paper to a baking sheet or spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix the butter, white sugar and brown sugar together with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Add the egg and mix until combined.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix on medium speed until the ingredients have completely combined.
Using a cookie batter scoop or your hands, add six 1 inch balls of dough to the pan evenly spaced out.
Bake for 8-10 minutes and let them cool completely.
Bake the remaining dough on a separate cookie sheet, or on that same pan once cooled.
Melt the white chocolate wafers according to the instructions on your packaging.
Dip the chocolate cookies halfway into the white chocolate and let them drain off a bit, before returning them to the parchment paper.
Sprinkle the cookies with crushed peppermints and let them cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
