White Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

If I had to pick my favorite holiday treat, it would definitely be peppermint bark. I don’t even know if there’s a close second. Maybe Oreo truffles? Maybe.

My love affair with peppermint bark began long ago. For as long as I can remember, my grandma has made it every Christmas. It is definitely her fault I am so obsessed. Since I blogged a Peppermint Marble Bark recipe last year, I decided I should probably change it up this year and make something different (read: in addition to).

I kept all the elements of peppermint bark: semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, and candy canes and turned it in to a cookie. White Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies, to be exact. They are amazing. If you love peppermint bark and you love chocolate chip cookies, you will die over these. I mean, what’s not to like?!

Peppermint White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Personally, I judge my cookies by their dunkability. These cookies are very dunkable. Especially in hot chocolate. My favorite thing to do in the winter is have a cup of hot chocolate before bed. Theses cookies are the perfect hot chocolate companion. They just make you feel cozy. The cookiesย are soft, and a little chewy but not too much. They’re the perfect consistency. I saved some of the cookie dough when I first made these to make later and the leftover dough didn’t even last a full day. That’s how good they are.

I have a cookie exchange coming up, and I am definitely bringing these. I suggest you do the same.
