  1. Step 1

    Combine butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer until fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Add eggs, vanilla, and peppermint extract and blend for 1 minute, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Mix in flour and baking soda. Add creme de menthe chips and pecans and mix thoroughly by hand.
  2. Step 2

    Chill dough for 15 to 30 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Step 4

    Scoop 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and arrange 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
  5. Step 5

    Bake in the preheated oven until the edges of the cookies just start to brown, 9 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven; let rest on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  6. Step 6

    Meanwhile, place chocolate for drizzle in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Add peppermint extract and stir to combine thoroughly.
  7. Step 7

    Cut a small portion of a corner of a zip-top bag off with scissors; transfer in dark chocolate mixture. Drizzle over cooled cookies and allow chocolate to harden.
