By itself, this chewy fudgy (WHOLEGRAIN!!) chocolate cookie is noteworthy but wrap it around a white chocolate peppermint kiss and it becomes THE most requested Christmas cookie of all time.
Fudgy White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
- 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 24 white chocolate peppermint Hershey's kisses
- 4 tablespoons granulated sugar, (for rolling, you'll have 2 tablespoon leftover)
In a small bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl beat the butter and brown sugar together until creamed.
Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.
Slowly add in the flour mixture and beat until thoroughly mixed.
Chill for a minimum of 2 hours. I chilled mine overnight.
Preheat oven to 350.
Wrap approximately 1 tablespoon of dough around a peppermint kiss, roll in granulated sugar and set on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 8 minutes. Every oven is different so once you reach 7 minutes, take a peek. The cookies should be puffed up and slightly cracked on top but still soft. you do not want to over bake these or they will seem a bit drier and less fudgy.
Pull out of oven and allow to cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
