Chocolate Peppermint Chip Cookies

Peppermint Chip Chocolate Cookies
These chocolate peppermint chip cookies and the Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies, are all from the same cookie, but it’s amazing how different the chips make them. I asked a bunch of people which cookie they preferred and everyone had a different opinion, so of course I have to show all three kinds. I actually go back and forth between my favorite as well. I love when March hits and the Girl Scouts bust out those Thin Mint cookies so I’m always a little pulled in that direction with the Andes Mint Chocolate cookies but there’s something just so darn perfect and holiday awesome about the peppermint chip version.
Peppermint Chip Chocolate Cookies
Normally I don’t really do peppermint in my dessert unless it’s totally awesome, candy yes, cookies or brownies? Not really. But these peppermint chips are different. It’s not the hard candy like many peppermint desserts sport, instead it’s these little chips that taste like peppermint white chocolate. They get all melty and creamy which means that the cookie is melty and awesome.

Plus they make your house smell like the holidays and I loooove the holiday smells. Decorating is fun and feels so exciting, but when you walk into a house that smells like Christmas, well that’s when you really get into the holidays. Don’t you think?
