More cookies!!!! You can never have too many cookies or Christmas Crack this time of year! These cookies are so fudgy and gooey that they became a favorite with my family last year. I can’t get enough peppermint at Christmas and when you mix it with chocolate you win my heart! Really, give me all the peppermint things! These Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies are my boys’ favorite! These blossom cookies really aren’t hard to make at all but you do have to allow it to chill for a few hours. I like to make it up one day and bake off another kind of cookie then the next day I can just pop them in the oven and bake them off really quickly.
I’ve said it before that I like to have cookie dough in the fridge that can be baked off quickly when I need it. Cookies and things from the oven are a great way to create memories in the kitchen with your family (especially the kids) and make a great gift that your family and friends will really appreciate. This year my husband to my boys to meet up with one of their friends and I stayed home and baked. I made these cookies while I listened and sang Christmas music, drank a glass of champagne, and watched the snow fall. It was really a great day and a fun way to recharge during the holidays!
