  • 1 cup Cold Butter (cut into small cubes)
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup Cake Flour (or may use all-purpose flour)
  • 1 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 16 Peppermint Candy Cane OREO Cookies (crushed into bite-size pieces)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Peppermint Extract (optional...may add it with the vanilla)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (if your oven runs hot, reduce temperature to 390 degrees). In large bowl, cream together cold butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.

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

  3. Add cocoa, cake flour, all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt and stir until combined. Stir in semisweet chocolate chips and crushed OREO cookies. Chill dough for 15 minutes.

  4. Separate dough into medium to large balls and place on lightly colored cookie sheet. Lightly press on top of dough to smooth out. If you have a scale, you can make them anywhere from 3 ounces - 6 ounces.

  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown on the top. Let them rest for at least 10-15 minutes to set.
