York Peppermint Patty Fudge Cookies!

Ingredients:

1 cup + 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped (I used 2 Ghirardelli chocolate bars)

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

14 snack size York Peppermint Patties, chopped

Directions:

Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Melt the chocolate in a small pan, stirring often until fully melted and smooth. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and vanilla. Set aside.

With a mixer on medium speed, beat the butter until smooth and creamy – about 1 minute.

Beat in the sugars, scraping down the sides as needed. The mixture will be granular. Mix in the beaten egg/vanilla until incorporated. Add the chocolate in a steady stream and beat until combined. Add the dry ingredients on slow speed. Fold in the chocolate chips. Do not overmix at any point in this process. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Scoop about 2 Tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Press a few pieces of peppermint patties on the tops of each cookie ball. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cookies have just begun to set with the centers still appearing very soft. They will firm up as they cool.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
