Greetings! I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderfully delightful. Are you busy with post-holiday shopping, indulging in morning pie (I might be guilty of that too), or journeying back from your Thanksgiving celebration? Although it’s not quite December, I’m excited to share some amazing recipes with you in the coming weeks. So, let’s dive in!
Peppermint Chocolate Delights
December is the peak season for all things peppermint. I eagerly anticipate this time of year to relish the classic combination of chocolate and peppermint – it’s a duo that somehow doesn’t seem appropriate at any other time. As we transition to December, it’s time to embrace everything chocolate and peppermint.
Introducing the most charming Peppermint Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches today! Imagine tender chocolate cookies with a heart of peppermint cream, all rolled in finely crushed peppermint candies.
These cookie sandwiches are not only a feast for the eyes but also make lovely gifts, are perfect for cookie exchanges, or for simply sharing with friends and family during the holiday visits. If you have children, they’ll be thrilled to both help make and enjoy these treats. My kids were ecstatic to bite into a creation that’s essentially two cookies with a creamy center – true holiday excitement!
The texture of these cookies is crucial; they are soft, akin to brownies. This softness ensures the peppermint cream stays intact with each bite. The filling, enriched with peppermint extract, perfectly complements the chocolatey cookies. Remember, a little peppermint extract goes a long way, so adjust according to your taste preferences.
