It’s cookie season, and if you have been following the Holiday Cookie Series this year, you know I started back in October. Well, today, I have not one, but nine cookies to share.Yep, see all that goodness below? It’s a virtual cookie exchange headed up by Honestly Yum with some of my favorite bloggers.
To find out what each one is and to grab the recipe, just hover and click on the cookie. It will take you to the recipe.
Now, if you are regular reader, then you know every year I go crazy with peppermint, so don’t be surprised if you see a few more very soon.
For now, let’s cover the cookie you see here. It’s start’s with the an ultimate rich chocolate chewy base from here. From there I took it and gave it a few tweaks, like topping it with some marshmallow fluff and then finishing it with a glaze and some crushed peppermint candy. It’s rich, so you probably should have a glass of milk within arms reach or maybe you are a dunker, in which case—go for it. I’m dunker, but I like mine with coffee not milk.
Want to really double down? Yes? Then you should have these Peppermint Hot Chocolate Cookies with some homemade peppermint hot chocolate.
