Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
Chocolate Peppermint Cookies - made at the family ranch this weekend for a quick treat.
I found this in Family Circle magazine (Nov 2009 issue), I buy all kinds of magazines, and I know it would be cheaper to have subscriptions but they hit the newsstands faster than the mailbox and I can't stand in line at HEB and look at the new magazines and NOT buy any, PLEASE!!!!!! Anyway, this was in Family Circle and is Chocolate Peppermint Cookies, now their recipe wanted me (and you) to MAKE the chocolate chip cookies. I love to cook and even bake, but I absolutely HATE to make cookies. Why, I don't know but I do, so I cheated and bought store bought chocolate chip cookies and went from there.
Melt chocolate in microwave, be careful with white chocolate and only microwave for about 30 seconds at a time and stir, otherwise the chocolate burns. Crush up peppermints in a Ziploc bag. Spoon melted chocolate on top of cookie and sprinkle with crushed peppermint. Done!
