Oh, these are some yummy cookies!  Crispy outsides, chewy insides….and they stay that way for at least 5 days.  I haven’t eaten one yet today but I bet they are still the same today too!  The recipe came from the back of the Trader Joe’s Peppermint Bark Pieces bag.  I have to say that I have fallen in love with Trader Joe’s.  The store is close by to where I work so I have spent many lunch breaks browsing the store.  I haven’t bought anything from there yet that we don’t love.

These are a definite keeper for your cookie list!  I sprinkled a little grey sea salts on top of some of the cookies and it gave them that extra special bite every once and a while.  I just love sweet and salt don’t you?

Peppermint Bark Cookies
A chocolate cookie with Trader Joe’s Peppermint Bark Chips….irresistible!
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup coca powder
  • 1-9 oz bag Trader Joe’s Peppermint Bark Baking Bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until completely blended.  Beat in one egg at a time until well blended.  Stir in vanilla.  In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa.  Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, beating until completely blended.  Fold in the Peppermint Bark Baking Bits.  Drop dough by rounded tablespoonsfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet about 3 inches apart.  Bake 12=14 minutes (mine took 12).  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.  Recipe stated that it made approximately 12 cookies.  I used my small cookie scoop and got 36 cookies.
