Chocolate Peppermint No Bake Cookies are a perfect addition to your cookie collection!
Serves: 36 cookies
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 8 Tbs salted butter
  • ⅔ cup milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ¼ tsp peppermint extract
  • Crushed candy canes
  1. In a medium saucepan combine butter, cocoa powder, milk, sugar, and chocolate chips.
  2. Stir constantly until chocolate chips are melted and mixture begins to boil. Allow mixture to boil for 90 seconds.
  3. Remove from heat and add peppermint extract.
  4. Fold in oats until completely coated and drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a piece of wax paper. Sprinkle immediately with crushed candy canes and allow to set for at least 1 hour.
  5. Store in fridge in an airtight container for firm cookies. You can also leave them out at room temperature but it will result in a slightly softer cookie.
