Chocolate and Peppermint is my all time favorite flavor combination so it’s no surprise that these cookies are a holiday staple in our house. These Double Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are super easy and quick to make with just 5 ingredients!
Last Christmas I discovered these delicious little peppermint bits at my grocery store. They are super tasty and were perfect for my Peppermint S’Mores Brownies. This year I knew I wanted to use them again so I decided to add them into my favorite chocolate cake mix cookies.
Cake Mix cookies are the easiest kind of cookies to make, they are soft and chewy and only require a few ingredients – a box cake mix, 2 eggs and a stick of butter. That’s it! Of course the chocolate chips and peppermint bits make a world of difference, but even without those additions these cookies taste seriously amazing.
