So I originally intended to make this post much earlier in the week, but things got in the way. It was only this morning I realized that my sweet obsessed brother and sister-in-law are coming into town tonight. So I frantically began baking.
I knew I wanted to make something from scratch and peppermint flavored. A few weeks ago, I was browsing on Pinterest and I came across the recipe for chocolate peppermint bark cookies. I knew I had to make them. Here is the recipe.
They were surprisingly easy! A few adjustments I made: I only used 1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter and 3/4 cup of sugar. I also put much less chocolate chips and candy canes than indicated, no white chocolate chips whatsoever and the end result was just the perfect amount of sweetness.
The final product. I used a knife to create swirly designs and cut them in unique shapes.
What are you baking for the holidays?
I wish you and your family a very happy holiday! Have a lovely weekend.
