Chocolate Peppermint Cookies with Vanilla Buttercream are a soft, chewy chocolate cookie with a creamy vanilla buttercream topped with crushed peppermint candies. The combination of flavors is so rich and festive! This will make a great addition to any Christmas or holiday cookie platter!
Hey there! My name is Karli, I’m visiting from Cooking with Karli as part of MamaGourmand’s holiday cookie exchange!
These Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are HANDS DOWN my favorite Christmas cookie of all time. I’ve been making these cookies for years and they never disappoint.
When I say years, I mean nearly TEN! (And that right there makes me feel old!) It all happened for the first time back in high school while working at Subway… More on that story over here though!
This chocolate cookie is a very basic recipe that yields such a chewy, rich cookie time after time! It is the base for quite a few cookies on my site, my Chocolate Cookies with Reeses Pieces being the most popular.
The rich chewy cookie is topped with my favorite Cookie Frosting (aka the most delicious Vanilla Buttercream of them all!) and then sprinkled with crushed peppermint candies.
Honestly, Christmas in a cookie that needs to grace all of your neighborhood cookie plates this season.

Hey! I’m Karli, the face behind my blog Cooking with Karli. Betcha never could have guessed that.. 😉
This blog is a little glimpse into my kitchen, family & life. I take pride in creating and developing recipes that use minimal ingredients, have minimal prep yet taste AMAZING! Oh, and picky eater friendly, too. I love the Instant Pot but have quite the sweet tooth. There isn’t ever a shortage of crazy going on at my house (which obviously ends up on the blog.)
I hope when you visit my blog you can giggle and cry with me. I hope you feel like you’re sitting down with an old friend. I hope you can feel that you matter and are LOVED!
