Happy Holidays! Are your decorations up? Mine aren’t :( but I have started holiday baking! The first thing I made was for the leftovers club– yay! This month, I was paired up with Aly from Cooking in Stilettos. These peppermint patty cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod were hard to wrestle out of the hand of my hubby, and I know that Aly and her family will enjoy them.

Peppermint Patty Cookies -- The Leftovers Club

Print Friendly


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 30-36 peppermint patties
  • Powdered sugar, for decorating the cookies
  • Cook time: 10 min
  • Servings: 30-36 cookies
  • Difficulty: easy


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheets and set aside.

With a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add in eggs and vanilla. Slowly, pour in flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa.

Take a golf ball sized ball of dough (for monster cookies, half a golf ball size for smaller cookies), roll into a ball, and flatten it into a disc. Place a peppermint patty in the center and wrap the excess dough up and around the patty. Make sure the entire patty is covered. Repeat with remaining dough and place on prepared baking sheet, about two inches apart.

Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are set, but still soft in the middle. Dust the cookies with powdered sugar.

    I could eat peppermint patties until I get sick. I just LOVE Them. In a cookie? I’d probably love them even more!

    • Elizabeth Dec 06 at 1:02 pm Reply

      Me too!!! And peppermint may even be better in a cookie :)

  21. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell Dec 06 at 1:12 am Reply

    I love chocolate and mint together. I’m afraid I’d have to try at least six before I could take a breath!

    • Elizabeth Dec 06 at 1:02 pm Reply

      Thanks Jennifer!

    quick question, you have listed melted butter, but the recipe calls for the sugars and the butter to be creamed. Can you do that with melted butter? and if so, what difference does it make! Making them now with melted! Thanks

    • Elizabeth Dec 18 at 12:57 pm Reply

      Hi! I’ve tried with room temp butter and melted (I normally forget to leave the butter out and have to nuke it), and the results are exactly the same :) Hope you found that it worked out!
