The double chocolate cookie dough begins with a high-quality cocoa powder and is filled with semi-sweet chocolate chips. After rolling the cookie dough into balls, place chunks of white chocolate peppermint bark inside the cookie and bake the cookies to perfection. Candy canes are sprinkled all over the top. A touch of sea salt can even be added.

Where do you find white chocolate peppermint bark?

Ghiradelli, Hershey’s, Cost Plus World Market, Williams-Sonoma, and Sur La Table all make white chocolate candy cane peppermint bark bars that are to die for. You could even chop up the festive Candy Cane Hershey Kisses as well. Try to place the peppermint bark closest to the center of the cookie so that it doesn’t spread onto the baking sheet.

Here are my top 5 tips to make perfect Mrs. Claus Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies:

1.  Cream the butter and sugar for 4 minutes.

2.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

3.  Use high-quality cocoa. Get the good stuff because it’s the star ingredient.

4.  Chilling the dough makes the cookies even better. Place the white chocolate peppermint bark towards the center of the cookies.

5.  Watch the cookies carefully so you don’t burn the cookies. No hockey pucks!
