Holiday Double Chocolate Cookies

What is a more iconic flavour combination at the holidays than chocolate and peppermint? It’s something that we all look forward to every year. It’s great in hot chocolates, candies, and even cookies. These Holiday Double Chocolate Cookies are not only great for get togethers, but you’ll find that they are great throughout the holiday season.

These cookies have a wonderful chocolate peppermint flavour. Remember that splurging on pure peppermint extract is going to give you the best flavour. Whenever you bake, always use the best ingredients and you’ll be happy with the results. That’s where many people go wrong. Skimping on real butter, extracts, etc. can really hurt the overall flavour of your baked goods.

These cookies would be great for bake sales, gifts, holiday parties, etc. Imagine putting these in a cute holiday container with colourful tissue paper as a gift for your child’s teachers. You could also pack these in cut treat bags for bake sales or gifts for your neighbours and coworkers. The flavour of these cookies is amazing, but presentation is always important. If you’re taking these to a party, place them on a cute platter and with a paper doily under them. And, let’s not forget how amazing these would be for a cookie swap. Everyone will be wanting more and begging for the recipe.

If you want something that satisfies that craving for rich chocolate and peppermint, these holiday cookies are excellent. You will love sitting down and enjoying these with coffee, hot chocolate, or even a cold glass of milk. This is the perfect way to unwind after being stuck in your local mall for hours with angry and impatient shoppers. Just pop these in the oven or microwave to warm them up whenever you need a treat to help you make it through the holidays with your sanity intact.
