Wonderful holiday cookies with peppermint and chocolate flavors. Crunchy, chocolate peppermint cookies dipped in milk or white chocolate and topped with sprinkles or peppermint crunch. Make it more fun by dipping the same cookie half in white and half in milk chocolate.
Lots of cookie making goes on during the holiday season.
My favorite cookies have always been soft and chewy cookies. Although, when I get Girl Scout cookies each year, I get a couple extra boxes of Thin Mints.
There is something about a crunchy, minty cookie coated in chocolate that just makes my soul sing.
I’ve modeled these holiday cookies after Thin Mints and put peppermint twist on them. Inside, is a thin, crunchy cookie favored with peppermint extract. These thin cookies are coated in milk chocolate or white chocolate.
To make them festive, I’ve added some peppermint crunch chips on top of some cookies and on other cookies, I’ve added holiday sprinkles.
These cookies are perfect for holiday parties and cookie exchange.
