Peppermint Cocoa Cookies
all purpose flour
semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
instant espresso powder
(optional but add richness to the chocolate flavor)
starlight mint candies or candy canes, broken into small pieces
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together sugar, melted chocolate, vegetable oil, espresso powder and vanilla.
Stir in eggs one at a time.
Gradually stir in dry ingredients.
Stir in broken candy pieces.
Chill for 30 minutes.
Preheat over to 350°F.
Form cookie dough into walnut sized balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet, 2" apart.
Bake 13-15 minutes.
*I did not have any marshmallow fluff on hand when I made these but I think it would be great for turning these into a sandwich cookie.
