Peppermint Bark Christmas Cookies

I have one of my favorite cookies of the holiday season!
These Peppermint Bark Christmas Cookies will be the hit of your party.

This recipe came from my love of any Ghirardelli chocolate square.

Sad perhaps?

Honestly, I think you should thank me. This cookie recipe is THAT good.

Whenever a holiday rolls around those shiny bags grace the store shelves and just draw me in. Especially at Christmas! And I have a fondness for the Peppermint Bark variety because they aren't "overwhelmingly" filled with peppermint.  Do you know what I mean? The bottom half of the square is covered in milk chocolate and I think that gives it a nice balance.

I also wanted to give you guys a great holiday cookie before my 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways starts. You know, something to "get you through the madness" of the next twelve days.

Each year I try and develop at least one yummy Christmas cookie, often times two - and here is this year's creation!

It's like a cross between an incredible crispy on the edges, soft in the middle chocolate chip cookie, but with the addition of mild peppermint and white chocolate pieces. Pretty much the best holiday cookie that will grace your table this year!

And if I'm being completely honest, my first two batches of these turned out PERFECT.

My last batch, when I was trying to majorly multi-task - making a big batch of soup for dinner and forgetting about my timer that was loudly dinging in the background - got a bit dark.

But still good!

I just fed those to the kids.

Look at that bite!

These are definitely going down as a favorite this year. For sure put them on your baking list! If you need other other cookies to make too - here are a few other favorites.

I once read in a magazine that the trick to getting cookies looking great for photos is to add more chocolate chips, or in this case peppermint bark, to the tops of the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven.

This way you see more of it, it only slightly melts, but yet still holds its shape. Doing this for sure tells people - not just an ordinary chocolate chip cookie here! That's peppermint bark right there folks. It will also make them disappear faster.

So there is that.

Tis the season friends.
