Chocolate Peppermint Drops: How to Make Easy and Flavorful Cookies with Cocoa and Nuts

Chocolate Peppermint Drops

This morning I was in the mood to bake, but  I wasn’t sure what it would be.  The only thing I knew was that it had to be something easy and bursting with chocolate.  After scanning through my recipes, I finally decided on the perfect one with my cookie recipe for chocolate peppermint drops.

My chocolate peppermint drops are puffy cookies, but not soft or hard. These yummy delights have a wonderful, in between texture brimming with finely, chopped walnuts and flavor fortified with peppermint extract, which magnificently compliments the chocolate.

Just like my other recipes, this one is simple and won’t require any creaming of butter, margarine or shortening.  Instead, you just do some basic combining of oil, sugar, eggs, and the rest of the ingredients before you drop by tablespoon onto your greased cookie sheets. Do allow them plenty of room because they will expand.

If you are a big fan of chocolate like yours truly, then I hope that you will decide to make these puffy cookies. You also definitely need to taste my chocolate crinkle cookie recipe as well. These are so rich, fudgy and brownie-like that will please you and result in compliments when you serve them.

Chocolate Peppermint Drops

3/4 cup of canola oil
1 cup of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of peppermint extract
2 teaspoons of baking powder, leveled
½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup of finely chopped walnuts
3 large eggs
2 cups of sifted flour

Add the oil, sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl and beat with your electric mixer or with your whisk until combined before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Drop by tablespoon onto your greased cookie sheets and bake in a 350-degree oven for about 10-12 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.

Test with a toothpick to determine if thoroughly baked.

ENJOY!
