Notes: {contains affiliate links}

  • I used King Arthur Flour Triple Cocoa Blend to get the deep, rich chocolate flavor.
  • I tried making these cookies with unsweetened chocolate and butter, but they weren’t fudgy enough. Using oil keeps them nice and chewy!
  • Don’t over bake the cookies or they will lose their chewiness.
  • I use this Small Cookie Scoop to get uniform, 2-inch cookies and perfectly sized Russian Teacakes/Snowball Cookies.
  • I forgot to count the total amount of cookies, so 5 dozen is a guess.

But wait, there is even more peppermint cookie goodness, like these Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies made with white chocolate peppermint m&m’s…..
