Truth be told I have never been a huge fan of candy canes…but once it comes around to this time of the year I am all about sticking them in my homemade hot cocoa while cozying up by the fireplace. Of course I am a huge fan of holiday cookies, so what better way then to combine the two?
I am not going to lie that these taste like you’re biting into a candy cane, but a bit less artifical tasting and a heck of a lot tastier.
These cookies are extremely chewy with crispy outsides. Bites of peppermint melt in your mouth while getting hints of vanilla embedded in the soft dough. I think these would be perfect to dip in your warm hot cocoa this christmas season.
Yes I know these are not the healthiest cookies for you, but let’s be honest here…I don’t think christmas season is a time where you go out and bake a dozen healthy cookies to enjoy right?
Feel free to get creative with this recipe and add ingredients like:
- vegan white chocolate chips
- cocoa powder
- chocolate chips
