chewy peppermint mocha cookies

Saturday was a great day. The perfect weekend day, really.

I went to a yoga class in the morning and in the afternoon, Adam came over to fix one of my kitchen cabinets that had gotten unhinged and to be my official cookie taster. He left, I curled up on the couch to watch Love, Actually (how have I never seen that movie before?!) and then he came back over to pick me up for our weekly date night.

You know what the very best part was though??? Not those mussels, not the fries and not even that amazing garlic aioli that literally melted on my tongue. Nope, the very BEST part was when Adam took one bite of these fudgy cookies and told me they were the best cookies he’s ever tasted in his entire life.

Bold statement.

These cookies are SUPREMELY fudgy and chewy, and full of dark chocolate chips, peppermint and instant coffee. Friends, if there’s anything I love more than coffee, it’s a caffeinated chocolate cookie. And these do the trick juuuuuust fine. I got the idea to make these after one too many peppermint mocha trips to Starbucks. I was in a caffeinated stupor and thought, why not? I’ll dump coffee in my cookie dough. And some extra chocolate chips for good measure.

You can never go wrong with extra chocolate chips, folks.

These cookies are best eaten straight out of the oven when the chocolate chips are still melted and gooey. Oh, and that white chocolate drizzle? It’s pretty.  Isn’t that reason enough?

Chewy Peppermint Mocha Cookies

makes about 20 cookies

Print this recipe!


2 sticks butter, softened

1 1/3 cup sugar

1 tsp peppermint extract

2 eggs

1 tbsp instant coffee

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 1/4 cups flour

1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, then add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add peppermint extract.

In another bowl, whisk together the cocoa, flour, coffee, baking powder and salt. Add to wet ingredients and fold in chocolate chips.

Drop tablespoons of dough onto lined sheet trays and bake for 12 minutes. Let cool completely.

Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave (stirring after each 30 second interval) and scoop into a small plastic bag. Snip off end and drizzle cooled cookies with white chocolate.

    I love my caffeine too, and have heard that adding coffee to cookie batter can make for really moist and wonderful cookies. I have done it with brownies but never cookies. Must try this recipe!

    And “the best cookies he’s ever tasted in his entire life…” <– love that!

    My husband tells me that every month or so when I shove something in his face and say TRY THIS….and he's like oh this is the best ever. Til next month. I love it when I feel I have surpassed my previous efforts, even if my hubs isn't the best judge of things anymore 🙂

      Thats exactly what my husband does :)!! I have to love it because he’s so supportive and I guess maybe my cooking does just improve exponentially on a regular basis (*smug smile*) AND it does show he’s supportive. But I do sometimes wonder what it would be like to have a real proper assessor in the house!

      Sounds like Adams more frugal with his excitement though, so these cookies might need to go on my must bake list!

    This may be a silly question, but, do you mix the instant coffee with the rest of the dry ingredients or is it mixed in with the wet ingredients? I didn’t see it in the recipe and I would REALLY like to try these as I am a certified peppermint mocha addict!!!!

    I love the chocolate, mint and mocha combination. And you can never, ever go wrong with cookies straight outta the oven. Or cookie dough…

    Love Actually is one of my favorite movies of all time. I love how all the unique stories come together in a way. And it still totally gets me crying every time. How can you not LOVE Colin Firth aka, Mr. Darcy!? And Hugh Grant is oh so handsome….and Liam Neeson with his son who is in love…it’s just such a warm and lovely film!

    Jenna, As they say in life, timing is everything! I was just requested to bring dessert to a Monday Night Football party. Women are bringing wine and the guys bring food, which usually means pizza, although occasionally some brave soul might venture into the chili experiment. As i am considered a good cook 🙂 I was asked to forgo wine in lieu of dessert, so I was going to post the question right here re what do men like in the sweets dept. And, here we have a boyfriend approved cookie…in fact more of a guy commendation.
    Did you read my mind?
    These will be accompanied by your incredible Triple Ginger Biscotti, which I was thinking of dipping 1 end in chocolate. Sounds good, right?
    Thank you as always!

    Do you ever get the thought that Adam is just trying to get on his girlfriend’s good side? 🙂 I think I’ve lost count of the number of things he’s pronounced to be the best [insert food type here] ever. I don’t know if he’s said it about a cookie yet, though. So I will trust that these really are the best cookies he’s ever tasted! They sure look yummy to me.

    Just baked these! I subbed fake sweetener for the sugar, though (my mum’s diabetic and I wanted her to be able to have one or two!) and halved the recipe. They are EXCELLENT! Though mine didn’t turn out as dense as yours look – not falling apart, just much lighter inside. Still deeeelicious, though.

    Thanks for the wonderful recipe, yet again 🙂

My little guy who was sick and hadn’t eaten a thing all day licked off the white chocolate…it made me so happy! Paired with your chicken and dumplings (which I also made last night) it was a great night of eating at our house!

  • Sarah
    December 6, 2011 at 7:17 am

    I made these with my son last night and the flavor was so delicious! I could not stop picking at the dough! They didn’t turn out chewy though, just big and soft, which was yummy in its own way. I followed the recipe as written — was there a certain technique for dropping the dough on the baking sheet? Should I have patted them down a bit to get that chewiness? Thanks!

    Oh and for my microwave, 30 second increments was apparently too long to melt the white chocolate chips; they just seized up (and they were real white chocolate). So just a heads up, melting in a double boiler might work better if you have a too powerful microwave like me. 🙂

  • Chelsea

    In the spirit of “best ever” comments, I’ve made your white chicken chili twice now. My dad, who can detect a spice in any dish and is quite possibly the pickiest eater I know, told me he thinks that is his new favorite soup. Meaning, you’re soup is kind of a big deal! Way to go 🙂

  • Katie H
    December 7, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    These cookies are insanely delicious and will be a permanent addition to my Christmas cookie collection. I dropped 1/4 cup mounds of dough and still ended up with way more cookies than the 20 the recipe states, but I’m not complaining! It’s impossible to make too many of these!

  • Kyle
    December 16, 2014 at 4:57 pm

    I’ve made this recipe a few times and I really like it, but here are a couple tips that might help:

    If you want stronger flavors of coffee and peppermint go ahead and double the peppermint extract. I also use about 2 teaspoons of coffee extract because the instant coffee I used didn’t give me much of a coffee flavor.

    I don’t know how the author got the cookies in the picture following this recipe. It says to “Drop tablespoons of dough onto lined sheet trays and bake for 12 minutes.” Firstly, if you don’t flatten the balls of dough into a disk the cookies will not just flatten out and look like the ones in the picture. Second cooking for 12 minutes seems to make the cookies very crunchy and not chewy by the time they cool. I went with 9 minutes and got the consistency I wanted which was a light crunch on the edges and chewy inside. Lastly, I use a more than a tablespoon and come out with more than 20, so I don’t see how the author got only 20 cookies that size from a tablespoon each.

    Hope that helps someone out there. Happy baking!

    Briefly going to make a shoutout to this cookie recipe. Needed a last minute/ show stopping dessert for NYE this year and decided to scour the ELR archives for inspiration. I’ve been following this recipe blog for a long time, but I need to declare that this is probably my FAVORITE dessert I’ve made from a food blog… ever. It was so simple, so quick (I decided to forgo the pretty white choc drizzle so it ended up taking about 30 minutes flat once these babes came outta the oven) but the best tasting cookies I’ve had all holiday season.

    I’m only making such a big deal out of it because I was extremely, thoroughly, and impressively delighted with this cookie recipe 🙂
