Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies are the perfect way to celebrate the holiday season. Rich, chewy, indulgent and bursting with peppermint flavor.
Four words … Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies
Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about Christmas cookies. Christmas cookies are my favorite thing to bake each year and I can be a bit over the top with them.
It’s a compulsion, I need a support group, I admit that I have a problem.
Some people make one kind of of Christmas cookie and call it a day. Maybe their favorite cookie are Snickerdoodles or Magic Bars or Peanut Butter Blossoms so that make that one type of cookie that they love and that is the cookie that everyone gets. I respect those people and their commitment to their decisive decision making. #myhero
Sigh …. then there is me.
Me.. who loves cookies. Me who cannot narrow down her cookie making decision tree to a normal persons selection. Me who has to make at least 8 different cookies every year for no reason other than… I LOVE CHRISTMAS COOKIES!!!!!! Now, I too, have my favorites.. those would be the Snickerdoodles, Magic Bars and Peanut Butter Blossoms mentioned earlier. However, there is a new sweet treat that is quickly running up the ranks this year, Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies.
Oh my!! These are amazing! These Chocolate Peppermint Crinkle Cookies just scream Merry Christmas with their rich dark chocolate and their peppermint and their powdered sugar. They are the perfect embodiment of all that is indulgent and sugar love this time of year.
** One tip – if you are like me and combine all of your cookies in one big cookie trough ..er… tin, store these in a separate zip top bag … if you don’t, everything else will eventually taste like peppermint. Not a bad thing but I want my Soft Baked Orange Sugar Cookies to taste like orange and not some orange / peppermint hybrid. I learned this one the hard way 🙂
Happiness and blessings!
