Your perfect holiday cookie is here! A soft double chocolate cookie topped with a fudgy chocolate frosting and peppermint candies.Happy December..It's time for all things baking and the Christmas season! Yippee!
It's also time for this month's Fill the Cookie Jar. Just a quick re-cap...it's a fabulous Facebook baking group that shares their favorite cookie recipes each month. This month's theme is, of course, Christmas.
When I think of Christmas cookies, peppermint seems to be a perfect choice. What goes great with peppermint? Chocolate, of course! A nice, chewy, chocolate cookie filled with chocolate chips and then, we top them off with a dreamy, chocolate frosting. Then, we've sprinkle them with a chopped peppermint candies.
These are soooooo good. I so very much love them and so will you..trust me. Don't forget to leave a cold glass of milk for Santa with these..they are super-chocolaty!
