Chilling the Dough (Optional)

  1. This step is optional, but chilling the dough for at least 30 minutes will help the cookies to spread less and be chewier.

Shaping and Baking the Cookies [Imagen of A close-up photo of a hand pressing a peppermint patty into the center of a flattened ball of chocolate cookie dough]

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Scoop out dough by tablespoons and roll into balls. Flatten each ball slightly and press a peppermint patty into the center.
  3. Fold the dough around the peppermint patty, making sure it is completely enclosed.
  4. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, leaving a few inches between each cookie.

Baking Tips

  • For chewier cookies, bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • For crispier cookies, bake for 12-14 minutes.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Decorating the Cookies (Optional)

  1. Once the cookies are cool, you can decorate them with melted chocolate, sprinkles, or other Easter-themed decorations.


  • If your dough is too sticky, you can add a tablespoon of flour at a time until it is easier to handle.
  • Be sure to chill the dough if you want the cookies to be chewier.
  • Don’t overbake the cookies, or they will be dry and crumbly.
  • Let the cookies cool completely before decorating them.

These Peppermint Patty Stuffed Chocolate Cookies are sure to be a crowd-pleaser! They’re the perfect Easter treat that is both easy to make and delicious. So why not give them a try?
