A fun twist on classic Hershey’s kiss blossom cookies, these chocolate peppermint crinkle blossom cookies are not only pretty – they are fudgy and delicious! That peppermint + chocolate combo makes the perfect Christmas cookie!
Well, if you aren’t Christmas cookied out, you’re going to want to make room for these chocolate peppermint crinkle blossom cookies.
I know the name is a little bit of a mouthful, but I can’t very well leave out any part of the deliciousness, can I?
These decadent, tasty cookies are chocolatey.
Referencing, of course, the cute blossom pattern from artfully placing that Hershey’s kiss into the warm, soft, baked cookie.
And this chocolate crinkle version is so, so yummy (not to mention pretty and festive!).
I first shared this recipe exactly one year ago in a newsletter I sent out to my faithful subscribers (if you aren’t subscribed to get the newsletters, you can do that here!).
In the last 12 months, the newsletter list has more than doubled in subscribers, so I thought it was time to get this perfect Christmas cookie out to everyone!
I couldn’t live with myself if I knew so many of my favorite people were going through life without this cookie.
While the candy cane-striped Hershey’s kisses make this chocolate peppermint crinkle blossom cookie ultra-festive, you can use just about any flavor of Hershey’s Kiss.
I suppose that means we can add “well-rounded” to the list of this cookie’s characteristics!
Omit the peppermint extract from the cookie dough and throw on a dark chocolate Hershey Kiss, and you can go ahead and serve this cookie to me all year long.
Also, if you are adamantly opposed to Hershey’s Kisses (or you just don’t have them laying around and the thought of mustering up the energy to put on pants and go the store is too much to even consider), the crinkly, fudgy, powder sugary-coated cookies are fantastic on their own.
Just had to get that out there.
Hope you love these awesome cookies! They really do live up to all the hype.
