Black & White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

So a few weeks ago I made these cookies. You may remember me teasing you with mentioning them.


Unfortunately, I couldn’t share them with you at the time because they were top secret. Okay, well not really “top secret,” but they were my contribution to The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.

So far, I’ve received two out of the three of my batches from the swap, but I’m hopeful that my third batch is still on its way. Both of the batches I’ve received have been delicious, thanks to Carrie and Hilary, and it’s been an absolute blast to participate. I’ll definitely be doing it again, and just in case you’re interested, you can already sign up NOW for a reminder next year by going to this link.

So the cookies that I made for the swap ended up being a little experiment. I had never made them before, but I wanted to embrace the flavors of the season by including none other than…peppermint.


Luckily, the cookies turned out even better than I could have imagined and thank god there were two leftover cookies so that I could “test” them without having to make a whole other batch. Not that that would have been a problem, but, ya know.


I immediately packaged up my cookies and sent them on their way, before I could dig into them any more. I even included a nice little recipe card with my cookie gifts, which I’ll be sharing with you all later this week.


But for today, it’s all about the cookies. So go get your mixer ready, throw on some Christmas tunes, and start baking some of these yummy little treats.




I just may be making another batch of these as we speak! Winking smile


Question for the Afternoon:

Have you ever participated in a cookie swap? Would you ever?

    I would definitely participate in a cookie swap! I have officially entered to be notified of next year’s swap, only sorry I didn’t make it this year! Guess I better make lots and lots of cookies to make up for the ones I won’t be getting in the mail… :)
