You can bake your cookies and keep them in an airtight container. You do not necessarily need to put them in the fridge to keep them fresh. However, if you are preparing the dough in advance, you should place it in the fridge for up to three days or put it in the freezer to preserve it until you are ready to make the cookies. 

How to Make-ahead and Freeze Your Cookie Dough

The dough will stay good in the freezer for six months. You should scoop it onto wax paper, freeze the dough, then when it’s frozen transfer it to an air-tight container and place it in your freezer. When you are ready to use it, remove it from your freezer and bake it from frozen adding a few minutes as necessary. Make the dough when you have a few extra minutes and then bake the cookies closer to the holidays to ensure that you have plenty of delicious cookies to go around.

How to Make Different Variations of the Big Family Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

You can make different variations of the Big Family Chocolate Peppermint Cookies for your large family by switching out some of the ingredients in the recipe. For example, you might want to use miniature white chocolate chips instead of traditional milk chocolate chips in your cookie dough. You can even add peppermint-flavored chips to your cookies instead of the peppermint candies. Some people like to add holiday-themed sprinkles to their cookies to give them an added touch.

Description

Give your loved ones something good to eat this holiday season by preparing the Big Family Chocolate Peppermint Cookies. These chocolate and mint cookies are perfect to serve after a big dinner with everyone.


Ingredients

  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups chocolate chips
  • 2 cups crushed peppermints

 


Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

  2. In a large mixer bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy, about 5 to 10 minutes. 

  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until well blended after each addition. Add in the vanilla. 

  4. Slowly add the flour mixture, scraping down the sides as needed.

  5. Fold the chocolate chips and crushed peppermint into the batter.

  6. Using a small cookie scoop, drop the cookies onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

  7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 to 7 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

 

To freeze:

 

  1. Place waxed paper on a baking sheet.

  2. Prepare the batter as directed and scoop onto the waxed paper.

  3. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the cookie dough is frozen.

  4. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze up to 6 months.

  5. Follow the baking directions above! You can bake the cookies from frozen, but they will need a few more minutes added to the baking time if you chose. I like to defost the cookie dough beforehand and bake as directed.
