In a large mixing bowl combine cocoa powder, sugar, butter and oil. Beat in egg and vanilla until well combined. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt until a thick dough forms.
Use a 2 tablespoon scoop to make dough balls and place evenly on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet. (Should make about 16 cookies). Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool on the sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
While cookies are cooling, melt the almond bark in a microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring in-between, until melted and smooth. Alternatively, melt in a saucepan on the stove top over low heat, stirring constantly.
Dip each cookie halfway into the melted almond bark and immediately sprinkle with crushed peppermint. Place on parchment to set.
