Directions

In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted chocolate, 2 cups granulated sugar, 1/2 cup canola oil, vanilla extract, and peppermint extract.

Stir in the eggs, one at a time until combined.

In a separate mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt until thoroughly combined.

Add the mixed dry ingredients to the wet ingredients; mix just until combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or place in your freezer for 45 minutes until the dough is chilled. Cook's Note: This will make the dough easier to work with.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper or coat with nonstick cooking spray.

Working with 1/4 of the dough at a time, begin rolling the cold dough into portions about the size of a tablespoon or portion using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop.

In 2 separate bowls, separate the remaining 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and 3/4 cup powdered sugar. Roll each ball of dough first in the granulated sugar followed by a generous amount of powdered sugar. Place about 2-inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.

Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until the center of the cookie is set. Remove from cookie sheets and cool on cooling racks.

    Good flavor and looked very pretty and holiday festive.. mine ended up being a little on the the large size and ended up being more on the soft side than crunchy on the outside. Other than that a nice holiday cookie to bring to a party ( they looked very pretty too!

    the flavor, of course the most important component, was great. i feared overwhelming peppermint but not at all. if you follow the recipe they come out just like the photo. crunchy on the outside, and dare i say it, fudgey on the inside. i chilled my dough overnight as opposed to just a few hours. you rally need to fully chill it. the dough is extremely thin for cookies.

    These cookies came out perfect the first time. I did chill the dough in the freezer for 45min.. Make the balls a little smaller than a walnut. Press on centers for doneness, if it gives bake a few minutes longer until set. Very, very good cookie, and they look great too!
