doTERRA Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cookies

Spending some time looking for different holiday recipes for Christmas this year. I really want to share the Oils and thought why not with cookies?

Found this recipe on a fellow doTERRA blogger;




1 ¼ cup Butter

2 cups White Sugar

2 Eggs

2 tsp Vanilla

2 ½ cups Flour

1 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1 tsp Baking Soda

½ tsp Salt

5 drops dōTERRA CPTG Peppermint Essential Oil

1/3 cup Granulated Sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 350˚F
2.  In large bowl cream butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.  Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.  Add to creamed mixture and stir until entire mixture is an even dark brown.  Add dōTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil and stir until evenly blended.
3.  Roll dough into balls about 1” in diameter.  Roll each ball in granulated sugar and place on parchment covered cookie sheet.  Cookies will spread during baking.  Bake for 8-10 mins or until tops have a crackle appearance.

  1. Do you think they’d freeze well?

  2. I’m planning to make these this week but I’m still confused about the recipe asking for white sugar and granulated sugar — they are the same thing. The question above asked about powdered sugar and you said yes, but then referenced raw sugar; those aren’t the same thing. I’m guessing the 2 cups of white sugar is for the cookie dough, and that the 1/3 cup of granulated sugar for coating is actually powdered sugar?

    • I am sorry I did not get a notification regarding your question, I suppose you figured it out, sometimes it is best to just do a trail before a class,
      and yes, you are correct.

  3. Your recipe calls for white sugar and granulated sugar. Is white sugar referring to “powdered sugar?

    • Yes, opposed to say brown sugar. I would use the “raw sugar” that is not refined.

  4. About how many cookies does this recipe make?

    • well I guess it depends on the size of cookies you make – if they are 2′ Around, you can count on about 12, this is a small recipe. But excellent!
