Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I am addicted to peppermint! Thus, making this one of my favorite times of the year. I always have some of those hard peppermint candies in my purse, which reminds me of my grandma. She always carried them in her purse too.

Just how much do I love peppermint? I’ll never forget when Andes first came out with those Peppermint Crunch candy bars. I was hooked and so were a few gals that I worked with, but there was a problem. Apparently, so was everyone else and they were flying off the shelves. Target was the only store at the time that was pretty good about keeping them restocked. I stopped by Target every evening on my way home from work, and if Target had 20 bags that’s what I bought. I know… it seems a bit greedy in retrospect.

Luckily, these days the stores are doing a much better job of keeping my favorite candies on the shelves. When I signed up to participate in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, I knew I was going to make one of my favorite peppermint cookies to share. I just love these Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are so festive! These delicious cookies are a bit crunchy on the outside and oh-so chewy good on the inside.

I sent out a dozen each of these cookies to three different bloggers, and hope they enjoyed them as much as I do. In exchange, I received a dozen cookies from three different bloggers. They were all so yummy! I so much enjoyed being a part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, and love that it benefits a fabulous cause – Cookies for Kid’s Cancer.

  • I bought peppermint extract a week ago for a cookie recipe so I can make this one. My kids will love it I’m sure.
