A soft chocolate chewy cookie really hits the spot. When you add peppermint chips, well they are just perfect.
Sift together dry ingredients: flour, cocoa baking soda and salt.
Cream butter and sugar until creamy.
Add dry ingredients slowing into the butter mixture. I use a large serving spoon and add a few scoops and incorporate before adding more. Once these are all combined add the peppermint chips.
Drop by the rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Mine tend to be larger than a teaspoon, but all good. If you make them larger, you may have to cook slightly longer.
Bake for 8 to 9 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Remove and let sit on the cookie sheet until set then let cool on a cooling rack. Should make about 4 1/2 dozen
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa (baking kind)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups butter (2 1/2 sticks) softened
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 package peppermint chips
