Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Cookies Recipe

I love warm, freshly baked cookies. There is just something about warm and fudgy cookies that make them one of my favorite desserts.

York Peppermint Patty Cookies

Thanks to boxed cake mix, homemade cookies like these can be quick and easy to make.

These peppermint patty stuffed cookies start with a box of cake mix, just like these 3-ingredient lemon cookies from cake mix and funfetti cake mix cookies recipes.

Here is what you will need:

  • CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX: devil’s food or chocolate fudge cake mix both work wonderfully
  • OIL: vegetable oil or canola oil
  • EGGS: 2 large eggs
  • PEPPERMINT PATTIES: York peppermint patties are ideal, but generic work as well

How to Make Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies With Peppermint Patties

Simply mix, form, stuff, and bake!

How to Make Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

  1. MIX cake mix, oil, and eggs to form a dough
  2. FORM dough into 1-inch balls and press down to flatten slightly
  3. STUFF with peppermint patties
  4. BAKE in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes

Toppings (Optional)

We topped our cookies with chopped Andes Mints before baking. This step is totally optional and the peppermint patty stuffed cookies taste amazing with or without them.

Other topping ideas include sprinkles or chopped peppermint patties.

Speaking of Andes Mints, you should also try these rich and delicious Grasshopper Cookies and Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies–both recipe call for Andes Mints as well!

Baking Tips

Line your baking sheets. Non-stick cookie spray can cause cookies to spread out too much while baking. Line your baking sheets with a silicone liner or parchment paper instead and skip the spray.

Use a cookie scoop. The dough is sticky and hard to roll by hand. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop the dough into balls instead.

If you live these peppermint cookies, chances are that you will love this peppermint mocha bundt cake and these Ritz cracker thin mints too!
