Chocolate and Peppermint Chip Cookies

Chocolate and Peppermint Chip Cookies

Here’s to the beginning of holiday recipes. I’m starting off by making your Monday after the holiday weekend a little sweeter with these Chocolate and Peppermint Chip Cookies. A timeless and classic Christmas time combination that goes great in cookies, drinks, candy… etc.

These made a lot of cookies… around 4 dozen. So these are perfect if you need to bring a mass amount of cookies to a party, to a cookie exchange, to the office for a holiday party… these are the cookies for you. Plus, the dough is super good too. Let’s face it… we ALL eat the cookie dough.

You can use these Andes Peppermint Crunch Chips or you can crunch up candy canes and use those too. I personally like how the crunch chips melt in the cookies, and you won’t have to worry about the candy canes being possibly too crunchy.

Below is the recipe!
