These Peppermint Patty stuffed chocolate cookies won't last long this holiday season! Who doesn't love a rich chocolate cookie stuffed with a cool peppermint patty? Perfect for dunking in a cold glass of milk or hot cup of cocoa.
In a stand mixer, beat butter with sugars until light and smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
In a separate bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt until combined. Slowly add into the butter mixture, beating until just combined and no dry spots remain.
Scoop dough into portions of 2 tbsp each. Roll into a ball if needed and flatten gently. Place an unwrapped peppermint patty in them middle of each flattened mound of dough. Bring the dough around the peppermint patty until it completely covers the patty, smoothing the tops and edges.
Place cookies on a lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookie is just barely set on top. The trick to keeping these cookies soft is to no over-bake them. A set cookie will not look shiny or doughy on top in the very middle.
Remove cookies from the oven and cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
