    ‘Tis the season to be baking, fa la la la la, la la la la. It seems the last couple of weeks have been filled with baking and Christmas music, maybe that’s why the holiday season feels like it’s going by so fast this year. I have been sharing a lot of baked goods with family and friends and somehow have neglected my dessert loving husband, so I whipped up one of our favorite seasonal combinations last night – chocolate and peppermint. These chewy chocolate peppermint cookies are incredible alone or served hot with a scoop of ice cream – either way, you won’t be disappointed!

    This cookie dough batter is as good as the cookies themselves – it’s so fudgy! That also means it can be slightly sticky. I use a cookie scoop to make fuss-free dough balls.
