Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Here we are, at the final day of Cookie Week 2017! I’m leaving you with the cookie recipe I think I have made the most this season: Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies. Yes, they do have three chocolates in them. No, that is not too many.

Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Dark Chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. I think that just about covers it, right? The nuances of these different types of chocolate prevent these cookies from being too rich or too overpowering. Each type contributes their own flavors and sweetness to the cookie. These are a slight variation of my Mint Chocolate Cookies, another amazing recipe I recommend you try! I am a sucker for chocolate mint pairings, so I wouldn’t be surprised if I came up with another version next year. Happy (holiday) baking!
