Today I want to share my all time favorite cookie recipe with you the Chocolate Peppermint Cookies.
I may say this about a lot of my cookie recipes but really, this one is my FAVORITE! I'm a peppermint/mint lover. When Christmas time comes I could eat everything in peppermint flavor. I do believe I will be talking my children into making these for Santa every year. I heard a rumor that he loves peppermint cookies as well 😉
