Tis the season of cookies exchanges! I’ve had so many friends requesting recipes to use for cookie exchanges they are participating in. I’ve never been part of one, but I frequently share my Perfectly Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe because it is so easy to make and if you need to make a lot of cookies, easy is so important!
Don’t get me wrong, I looooove that recipe and you can never go wrong with a good chocolate chip cookie, but I wanted to give you an equally easy cookie that has a holiday flavor. So I adjusted my chocolate chip cookie recipe for the holidays.
I found Ghirardelli chocolate peppermint baking chunks at my grocery store and thought they would be a perfect ingredient in a holiday cookie. If you can’t find these, any sort of peppermint chips will work. (I know Andes makes baking chips, and I’m sure other brands do as well.)
These cookies are so soft and chewy and fudgy on the inside with some peppermint crunch to add that holiday flair! If you’re like me and don’t have a cookie exchange on your radar, these also make great gifts, or are the perfect cookie to leave out for Santa.
Like the chocolate chip cookies, these just take one bowl and a spoon – no mixer needed! These are so easy and the recipe makes a big batch so you can have a few extra to eat for yourself! I mean, you have to taste test, right?!
