Crumbl Copycat York Peppermint Patty Cookies are delicious – a chocolate fudge cookie filled with a whole York, topped with extra chocolate … and another piece of a York Peppermint Patty.

A couple weeks ago my kids tried the Crumbl York Cookies and were hooked. They asked if I could recreate them at home – I used my basic chocolate chocolate cookie dough base, wrapped it around a small York, baked them, and added a Ghiradelli chocolate square on top as the icing – this makes the process super easy. You just put the chocolate square on, melt it, and swirl it around the cookie. Add half a York on top and you are done.

These Crumbl Copycat York Cookies are perfect holiday cookies, and a great gift for neighbors or friends. (Click here to see my other Holiday Treat recipes.) I especially love that these don’t have too much peppermint – I think when peppermint desserts use too much mint flavor, it can taste a little like toothpaste. These cookies are slightly minty, and very chocolatey. The perfect chocolate to mint ratio in my opinion.

I love that these cookies have so many components but are still simple to make – a fugdy cookie with a delicious minty center, slathered with rich chocolate on top.

Servings 15 -20 cookies
Author Shannon Lyon | Plum Street Collective


  • 1 cup butter, unsalted (2 sticks)
  • cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 20-30 small York Peppermint Pattys
  • 15-20 Ghirardelli (or other brand) Chocolate Squares


  • Cream butter and sugar in a stand mixer with paddle attachment (or with hand beaters). Add eggs and extracts. Cream until incorporated.
  • Combine dry ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet mixture and mix until well incorporated.
  • Scoop dough using 4-5 tbsp. cookie scoops onto a large baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.
  • Flatten each cookie ball and place a York Peppermint Patty into the center. Wrap the cookie dough around the York, forming a large cookie dough ball. Make sure to completely cover the York.
  • Freeze cookie sheet with dough balls on it, 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  • When ready to bake cookies, preheat oven to 350°F. While cookies are baking, unwrap Ghirardelli chocolate squares, and extra Yorks.
  • Place 8-12 of the frozen/chilled cookie dough balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until edges are baked and there is a slight hump on the center of the cookie.
  • Once you remove cookies from oven, use a small spatula, lightly flatten the top of the cookie.
  • Add a chocolate square to the top of each warm cookie.
  • Place cookies with chocolate squares on top into turned off oven (make sure it's turned off, but still warm) – leave in oven for 2-3 minutes or until chocolate squares are soft and melted.
  • Once melted, remove from the oven and use the back of a spoon to swirl the chocolate around the cookie.
  • Once chocolate is smoothed, place a half of a York Patty on top. Let the cookies cool until chocolate sets before eating.
  • Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!

    Do the cookies need to thaw before cooking?
