Chocolate chip cookies with peppermint bark

How to Make Peppermint Bark Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies and they are going to love this festive twist on the traditional chocolate chip cookie. The addition of peppermint bark makes these the best Christmas cookies!

The hardest part about making Peppermint Bark Chocolate Chip Cookies is to not eat all of the peppermint bark before it goes into the cookie dough..ha! I know it is addicting, but I promise the cookies are worth the wait.

The chocolate chip cookie recipe is simple and straightforward. The only special ingredient you need is the peppermint bark! Chop up the peppermint bark with a sharp knife, you will need 2 cups of chopped peppermint bark to make these cookies. I put 1 1/2 cups chopped peppermint bark in the cookie dough and reserve a half cup to gently press onto the cookies when they come out of the oven. The additional peppermint bark on top of the cookies makes them extra pretty and extra delicious.

I also sprinkle flaked sea salt on top of the cookies. You will love the sweet, salty, minty, chocolaty, buttery combo! I am telling you these cookies are Christmas cookie perfection! Santa will be begging for a plate of these cookies!

Peppermint Bark Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

How to Store Peppermint Bark Chocolate Chip Cookies

You don’t have to chill the dough to bake these cookies, but you certainly can. I always think a good chill makes chocolate chip cookies better. You can wrap the cookie dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for up to 72 hours. I love keeping cookie dough in the fridge at all times during the holidays so I can bake off fresh cookies whenever guests stop by or whenever I get a cookie craving, which is every single day in December:)

You can also freeze the cookie dough. Roll the cookie dough into balls and freeze for up to one month. When ready to bake, preheat the oven and follow the same instructions, just add a few extra minutes to the baking time.

Once the cookies are baked, place the cooled in an airtight container and store on the counter for up to four days. Of course, they are best fresh out of the oven, in my opinion. Grab a warm cookie, a glass of milk, and ENJOY!

  101. I think my favorite holiday treat is fudge. I know I can get that anytime but my mom only makes it at Christmas.

  102. It’s not necessarily my favorite cookie, but my Grandmother’s snickerdoodle. It is the only recipe of hers that is 100% in her handwriting, and I found it after the death of our first baby. I baked it until I perfected it and now it isn’t my favorite to make for the holidays, in her honor as well as a reminder that a part of her is here.

  108. That is such a gorgeous mixer! I can’t pick just one holiday cookie, it’s too hard & there are too many!! I love mint chocolate chip cookies. Gingersnaps. Shortbread dipped in chocolate & then straight into candy cane dust. Russian Tea Cakes.

  109. I love making Gingerbread cookies in all shapes, then decorating them. Of course I sneak in a few to eat before giving them out.

  110. What an awesome giveaway! This mixer is absolutely gorgeous, and I’ve always dreamed of owning a KitchenAid mixer. My favorite holiday cookies are buttered popcorn cookies! 

  111. Snickerdoodles! They are my favorite any time of year, but especially during the holidays! Any chocolate/mint combo comes in a close second!

  112. Usually sugar cookies (the kind with almond extract & powdered sugar in them) but honestly I just made your classic snickerdoodles and they might be my new all-time fav. My husband said they are his new favorite!

  113. I’m a fan of decorating sugar cookies. But nothing beats a chocolate cookie just out of the oven with a nice cup of hot chocolate on a cold evening. Just perfect. 

  114. My favorite Christmas cookie is a soft and chewy ginger snap cookie dipped in white chocolate. Yum. But there are sooo many I haven’t tried that look just as good. I need to do some more baking! 

  115. After making them last year my new favorite Christmas cookie has changed. From sugar cookies to your Mexican wedding cookies! And yes, I agree that the secret ingredient is a game changer. 100%! I’ve already made a few batches for family and friends!

  116. My favorite Christmas cookie is a chocolate crinkle cookie, because it’s been a tradition in my family for over 30 years now.  Thanks for the chance at winning the beautiful mixer!

  118. Oh these cookies sound amazing!! My favorite…ah I have 2! Old family crescent recipe and a mint chocolate chip recipe from my mother in law!!

  124. I’ve always loved chocolate crinkles!! But peppermint bark is on the must have list, too!! Can’t wait to try this one! 

  125. Can a favorite cookie be chosen? That’s like choosing a favorite child! Snickerdoodles and peanut butter bars may be at the top of the list, but don’t tell the others!


  126. Magic Cookie Bars! Technically they are a bar but the name has the word cookie in it sooo…it counts! The gram cracker crumb base, the shredded coconut, the evaporated milk, the walnuts, I can’t choose what I love most about them. So delicious!!!!!!!!! 

  127. My all time favorite Christmas cookie is a simple roll out brown butter sugar cookie…preferably cut out in the shape of Christmas trees 🙂

  129. OMG, you weren’t kidding about that being the prettiest mixer ever! 

    Let’s be honest, is there ever really a wrong cookie for Christmas or any other time? Of course not! But I do always love a fun decorated sugar cookie for that magical, nostalgic Christmas taste. 

    I’m going to try your salted caramel chocolate chip cookies this weekend though, so I could have a new favorite by the end of the week! 🙂

  130. My all time favorite Christmas cookie is a shortbread cookie dipped in chocolate and rolled in walnuts.  So fun easy and delicious !  

  131. My favorite holiday cookie of all time is white chocolate macadamia nut and cranberry cookies by Tyler Florence. They have just the right balance of salty, sweet and tart flavors.

  132. My favorite cookies are my mom’s disappearing marshmallow cookies, which she makes in her own kitchenaid stand mixer. I have no idea where the recipe is from, except that the recipe is copied onto a card in her file!


  133. My favorite Christmas cookie is a chewy ginger snap, but this recipe looks delicious and I look forward to baking these festive beauties ❤️ ❤️

  134. Right now Peanut Butter Blossoms are my favorite but I’m planning to make these peppermint bark cookies so I may have a new favorite 🙂 

  135. Well, this cookie looks pretty darn good, but my absolute favorite is a Triple Ginger Cookie I’ve been making for a few years now!

  136. My favorite holiday cookie is Millionsire Shortbread. It’s something my Mum made every Christmas and New Year. Layers of shortbread, caramel and silky milky chocolate. Not really a cookie but it’s what I remember  the most.

  137. I’ve got so many to choose from, that it is difficult to choose. However, I would have to say ginger cookies. The spices in the cookies are just so reminiscent of the holidays!


  138. I love making your Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies for the holiday season as my, or should I say our, all time favorite Christmas cookie.  My husband doesn’t really have sweet tooth but inhales them each season!

  139. This mixer is so pretty!! I think my favorite Christmas cookies are cut out sugar cookies or snowball cookies. These recipe look delicious and I’m going to have to try them!!


  140. I love the holiday season because my nana and I get together to make dozens of different kinds of Christmas cookies for our family. I’m a HUGE cookie lover, but my all time favorite Christmas cookie is a chocolate crinkle cookie! That said, I am very eager to try out this new recipe! Thank you for the giveaway raffle! Happy holidays:)


  141. My all time favorite cookies are “pepparkakor” as a kid, I learned how to make Swedish ginger snake while living there. This mixer is beautiful! God Jul!


  142. My NEW all-time favorite: your soft ginger snap with white chocolate chip cookies. They have such a wonderful holiday spice flavor, perfect texture, rich white chocolate, and they look so pretty with the granulated sugar. Thank you so much for the recipe!! 

  143. My all time favorite Christmas cookie is my Grandmother’s Santa’s Whiskers. They are rolled in coconut which looks like his beard.


  144. Hmm my favorite holiday cookie are thumbprint cookies with raspberry jam! My boyfriend aunt makes them every year and they are to die for.

    I actually tried to make my first ever Christmas cookie the other day and realized how hard cooking making is without a stand up mixer! I tried to use my moms stand up mixer that was given to her as a wedding gift back in 1998 but the motor burnt out leaving me to mix by hand.

    I also am a HUGE fan of the WS Peppermint bark and honestly anything peppermint. I can’t wait to try this recipe on my next cookie baking day!!


  145. My ALL time favorite cookie has to be the classic shortbread cookie. Timeless and easy to make however I can’t ever achieve it’s perfection like mom does :). 


  146. My favorite cookie to bake at Christmas is my mom’s Italian biscotti! It smells and tastes like home!  Merry Christmas!


  147. Favorite cookie is a hard one!! While I am obsessed with your brown butter chocolate chip cookies(so is my entire family, I mean every single family member) I’m gunna have to say ginger snaps! Can’t wait to try out these peppermint bark cookies too. Merry Christmas/happy holidays!

  148. My favorite are our family’s mini biscotti. As kids we’d decorate them in the style of the Italian flag (which, incidentally is perfect for christmas). Christmas is the only time of year we ever make them.

  149. My grandma makes the best chocolate chocolate chip cookies. The first time she made them I ate one on the way home from work and basically screamed, they were so delicious. The cars next to me were probably concerned. 


  150. I’m a snickerdoodle fan! 
    The peppermint bark chocolate chip recipe looks really good. Will have to make next week. Real job for next 3 days

  151. Ahhhh!! So many to narrow it down! I love thumbprints and chocolate kisses. BUT my very favorite might be chewy gingerbread! 

  152. I have never thought of putting peppermint bark in cookies, but that’s an INCREDIBLE idea!!  Favorite holiday cookie is oatmeal cranberry white chocolate chip cookies :). They are a treasured family tradition. 

  153. My favorite Christmas cookie is a good ‘ole sugar cookie. I don’t typically make them often, but definitely do so at Christmastime for the kids to decorate. 

  154. My favorite holiday cookie is gingerbread. The smell, and taste of gingerbread takes me straight back to my childhood of making gingerbread men to hang on our Christmas tree. I think more ended up in our bellies than on the tree. 🙂

  155. Oh my goodness that mixer is GORGEOUS! I would love to win it! My favorite holiday cookie is triple chocolate cookies for sure! 

  156. I have a hard time choosing – we have a great cutout cookie recipe that always involves my dad frosting a few in his special way. They are always pretty hideous looking, but he tries his best! I also love my moms jam bars – they have to be the seeded raspberry kind. Yum! So important to have these family traditions and wonderful memories!

  157. hmmm tough one with a favorite but I do like oatmeal cranberry  walnut  white choc chip cookies. Choc chips cookies is always good too, simple but good.  

  158. My favorite Christmas cookies are Pecan Balls.  My anytime of the year cookie is of course, Chocolate Chip cookies. Love your blog!!!  

  159. My great grandmother’s cut outs!! I love baking them and decorating them with my son! It is one of my favorite days of the year! 

  160. Oh my gosh I can see this being my favorite Christmas cookie!  For now I’d have to say Italian Christmas cookie or Christmas Crack – which isn’t really a cookie

  161. Peanut butter blossoms — without a doubt! You can roll them in red and/or green sugar to make them a little more festive.

  162. I absolutely love a brown butter cranberry dark chocolate chip cookie. It’s delicious, the cranberry looks festive, it’s an all around winner. I may need to go make some right now!


  163. My all time favorite cookie recipe is the cut out cookies my Grandma used to make that now my Aunt has  taken over making. I am I too enjoy making and decorating. How much better to make these cookies than with a new William Sonoma KitchenAid mixer. 

  164. My all time favorite cookies for the holidays are the Christmas Tree Shortbread ones from Bon Apetit magazine – I’ve been making them for almost 20 years now!  Although those peppermint bark cookies look pretty spectacular too!

  165. I absolutely LOVE this beautiful Kitchen Aid Mixer!! We love making and decorating sugar cookies at Christmas! This beautiful mixer would make it much more fun! 

  166. I am SO basic but my favorite cookie is a classic homemade chocolate chip cookie. But let’s be real, I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like. 


  167. My favorite cookie for Christmas is Mexican Wedding cookies. Love how you showed me how to use the candied pecans. My husband loves it! Thanks so much


  168. My favorite holiday cookie is my mom’s gingerbread men. 
    I have tried to match the great texture her cookies had but have only gotten close once to matching the taste and soft  yumminess only she could bring to this Christmas tradition.

  169. Our usual go to is cut out cookies this time of year but this year so far we are loving cranberry white chocolate chip cookies. 


  170. This mixer is beautiful! My boyfriend and I would love to hve one so we can bake together! (He actually loves making cookies!) One of my favorite recipes is your chocolate chip cookies with the chunks, chips, and shavings with sea salt on top! Amazing!

  173. My all time favorite Christmas cookie is the Biscochitos they are very popular here in New Mexico so popular that they are our official state cookie.

  174. My favorite holiday cookie recepie is a peppermint mocha cookie. It’s a brownie cookie with espresso powder and peppermint extract, drizzled with white chocolate and sprinkled candy cane pieces

  175. My favorite holiday cookie is an oatmeal trilby. My mom made tons of cookies only at Christmas and this one was always our favorite. They’re basically like oatmeal cream pies in cookie form. But better.  I now make them en masse for friends and teachers etc at Christmas and it’s the only recipe I won’t share…because people love them so much and then it’s that much more of a special treat to give them each year. 


  176. Can’t choose just one favorite cookie!. My favorites are Chocolate Chip cookies, Snickerdoodles, Oatmeal and No Bake cookies.

  177. My favorite cookie by far during the holidays is a classic snickerdoodle. However, I really want to try making the chocolate snickerdoodles you posted about the other day and see if they become a new favorite! Also, that KitchenAid is so beautiful!  

  178. I think this cookie is going to become my new favorite cookie!  I love the peppermint bark and chocolate chip cookies. I do love to make zebra cookies too!

  179. Cranberry orange cookies and chocolate drop cookies are my two holiday favorites. Ones an oldy that brings back great memories and the other is a fairly new favorite.


  180. My favorite holiday cookies of all time are Russian Tea Cakes. The recipe came from the neighbor who lived across the street from my childhood home. She would bring them over every Christmas for my family and shared the recipe with me when I started baking on my own. They remind me of family holidays growing up. I love them!

  181. My ginger cookies are tops on my list for Christmas! However, I have to bake on Tuesday for my daughter’s high school Winter choir concert and the Peppermint Bark CC cookies sound perfect!

  185. I love a traditional sugar cookie with smashed candy canes in it! I only make it at the holidays and they’re absolutely amazing!

  186. My favorite Christmas cookie is a spritz with strawberry jam filling and the ends dipped in chocolate with chocolate sprinkles.   My grandma made them and now my mom makes them.  They are amazing!

  187. OMG – so hard to pick, BUT it will have to be a Snickerdoodle recipe I’ve made forever.  I add red and green sugars to roll the dough in for Xmas colors!!

  189. OMG, these look amazinggg !! My favorite holiday cookies are sugar cookies for their unlimited shape and icing flavors!

  198. Oh! How do you pick just one ‍♀️‍♀️‍♀️ I would have to say chocolate crinkles. It’s the only time of year I make them. Then sugar cookies bc… kids! 


  199. I would honestly have to say my favorite would be some good, old fashioned gingerbread men. I love the snap of the cookie and the spice of the ginger…and even though my kids are a little older now, they still love our tradition of making a homemade gingerbread house, from scratch, the  weekend before Christmas. 
    (But I do have to say that I’ve never thought of putting peppermint bark in cookies. We will definitely have to add these to our baking schedule this year!!)

  216. My all time favorite cookies is the simple cut out gingerbread man!  Flavor and nostalgia wrapped in one cookie!

  226. The simplest cookie of them all, classic sugar cookie, would be deemed my favorite! I rate this as my favorite not for the simple sweet and familiar taste, but rather for the sweet little hands that desire to make Christmas shapes from the dough. The sweetest and most joyful moments of the holidays can be found in our kitchen! The holidays wouldn’t be the same without the cut out sugar Christmas cookie “bake off” tradition and my kitchen floor covered in sprinkles! 

  227. Just had the best cookie last night at a Christmas party! I don’t know what it was called, but it had saltines, peanut butter, chocolate and brown sugar and butter. All layered! It was amazing!

  234. My all time favorite Christmas cookie are my 83 year old aunts sugar cookies. She used to wrap up a big box of them for me every year. I would hide them under my bed so no one would eat them! Nothing fancy but oh so good.

  237. That mixer is gorgeous! So many cookies to choose from! I’d have to say I love ginger snaps but frosted sugar cookies are a close second!

  238. My favorite Christmas cookies are my husbands’s Cinnamon cookies. Very similar to snickerdoodles but you roll them in finely chopped walnuts 

  239. Let’s try this again…I don’t make them just at Christmas, but I’d choose Orange Sugar Cookies. I don’t remember where I found the recipe, but the orange zest and OJ in the cookies and in the icing are amazing!

    Happy Holidays

  245. My favorite Christmas cookies are affectionately known in our family as “Grandma Cookies”.  It is a simple cookie dough that is put into a cookie press with a flat ruffled attachment  after the 2-3 inch cookie comes out of the press, it is sprinkled with red, white, and green nonpareils before baking. This cookie has been passed down through the family for years. They are the perfect little cookie treat in a in a square tin box all wrapped for Christmas!

  246. My childhood favorite was and still is the peanut butter blossoms with the chocolate kiss. Your version of it is amazing! Soft with the chocolate all melty from the oven!


  247. My favorite Christmas cookie is a frosted and decorated sugar cookie! Especially if there is a hint of almond flavor.

  249. My husband is a chocolate mint addict, so I have to try these! Maybe when I’m doing round 2 of Christmas cookie baking next weekend. My favorite holiday cookie is the “Italian brownies,” which are more like chocolate chip spice cookies, my grandmother used to make. Of course mine don’t taste exactly like hers, but they’re still pretty tasty.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
