This is the third installment of my baking extravaganza and probably the most important. This cookie I can actually call my own. I actually experimented with chocolate cookie recipes and made it my own. And it is the most popular cookie that I make. Everyone asks me to make these and give them the recipe.
These chocolate peppermint cookies are soft, chewy, full of peppermint flavor and are intensely chocolately. It's like a peppermint patty, candy cane and mint chocolate chip ice cream all rolled into one bite. Crazy I know! But I only speak the truth.
Lucky you, I am going to give out the recipe! After all I need to spread some more holiday cheer.
