Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 16 mins
Total time: 31 mins
  • 1¼ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • 6 miniature York Peppermint Patties
  1. For cups:
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°. Set aside a 12-cup muffin pan.
  3. Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  4. Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar together in mixing bowl and beat for 2 minutes. This will not be light and fluffy. Add egg and peppermint extract.
  5. Blend in dry ingredients followed by chocolate chips.
  6. Spray 6 of the muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray. Use a large cookie dough scoop to scoop dough into 6 muffin cups, using about 2 tablespoons dough per scoop. Spread evenly on the bottom with fingers. Place a peppermint patty in the middle of dough. Top with another scoop of dough. If need be, use fingers to spread dough evenly over peppermint patty.
  7. Bake at 350°, on a rack in the middle of the oven, for 16 minutes.
  8. Remove and cool completely in the pan. Use a small metal spatula to go around the edges of the Peppermint Patty Cups.
  9. Remove from pan and serve.
