Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Pin It Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Happy New Year! I love Ghirardelli Chocolate and saw this recipe on the back of the Peppermint Chunks I bought at Target for Christmas baking. The recipe is easy to do and the results are perfection. The cookie is gooey and fudgy and has an amazing peppermint taste that you get in each bite. These Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are rich in chocolate flavor and a decadent treat. See recipe below.

Look at all the peppermint chunks
