Fudgy chocolate cookies wrapped around a peppermint patty hidden inside.
So how’s your holiday shopping going? Every year I say I will be done way ahead of time and then relax and enjoy. Hah! Hasn’t happened yet. I haven’t even really baked much, save our annual gingerbread house and some rugelach.
And now these chocolate mint stuffed cookies. The peppermint patties are certainly seasonal for Christmas, and they make a delicious gift. In fact, people can become so addicted that they look for this same gift year after year..you know who you are.
If you bite (or cut) into them while they are still warm, the patty will be all warm and melty.
Are you baking any gifts this year? It’s the perfect thing for those hard to buy people, and it helps reduce the amount of “stuff” accumulated this time of year.
Plus there are all the extras…
They were good. Irresistibly good in this family to the point where there are none left. Sorry Dad. Christmas is still 5 days away, maybe I’ll have time to
hide make some more.
