Peppermint Mocha Cookies

 

One of our holiday traditions is stopping at the coffee house for a Peppermint Mocha to enjoy while shopping! I wanted to capture all those yummy flavors in an easy to eat cookie!

Peppermint Mocha Cookies

The rich chocolate cookie is almost brownie like. It’s full of crushed candy canes and semi sweet chocolate chips. I used my favorite brand Nestle Chocolate Chips. I grew up baking the chocolate chip cookie recipe off of their package and I still use their products today.

I always have to sneak a few (okay 10, fine 15) before tossing them into the batter.
