I plan on baking a lot with the kids for Christmas this year!
I’ve said here before that baking is definitely not my strong suit, so I like to make really easy recipes that taste fantastic but require very little baking skills.
I shared a few of my favorite holiday treats last year, and today I wanted to share another festive favorite with you: my White Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies!
My whole family looooves these, and what I love most about them is that you can make them semi-home-made if you want to! These delicious cookies start with a chocolate chip cookie base, and then are topped with a coating of melted white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed candy canes. I like to buy pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough (this is also so easy and fun for the kids to help with) and then after the cookies have cooled I continue with the rest! Melting the white chocolate is super easy in my double boiler. I felt like a grandma buying one a couple of years ago, but it is definitely one of my most treasured kitchen possessions now. I highly recommend one if you’re looking to add a classic piece to your kitchen arsenal.
The end result of this awesome cookie is sweet and chewy, with a little crunch, and over here in Casa Amurri/Martino, we LOVE them. I hope you love this recipe as much as we do!
And just in case you’re looking for some other treats to make, I’m sharing some Holiday treats from other sites that I’m trying out this year! These all look so delicious, I can’t wait to make them.
White Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies
- Double Boiler (If you have one...otherwise you can use a microwave!)
- Bake your chocolate chip cookies, and leave to cool on a cooling rack.
- Meanwhile, melt your chocolate chips in a double boiler over medium heat. I usually put about 1.5 inches of water in my double boiler, for reference. You can also melt the chips in a microwave safe bowl.
- When nice and creamily melted, coat the chocolate chip cookies with a layer of white chocolate. While the chocolate is still soft, sprinkle your candy cane bits over the tops of your cookies.
- Place in a baking sheet in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to harden. Enjoy!
