Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

I have been thoroughly enjoying cookies this week. Between the cookies I baked and am sharing and all the ones I have swapped I must have 15-20 different cookies in my fridge right now. I had to resort to trying a bite and throwing it out.. oops.

Anyways, the whole cookie swap idea is very new and exciting to me. I had never been to one before I had my own last year. I mean why are they only associated with Christmas, any day seems like a great time to make cookies and swap them. And why just cookies, what about cupcakes, cakes, any baked goods. In fact, I think i am going to have a cake swap for my next birthday.

Today I am sharing a cookies recipe based off the Inside Out Chocolate Chip Cookies¬†from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Sally has the best cookie recipes. She has done all the hard work figuring out all the measurement ratios for the softest chewiest cookies, so I think its best to give her credit and use her recipe.

But to give this chocolate cookie recipe a holiday twist, I replaced white chocolate chips with Peppermint Bark. With the back of a wooden spoon, crush the peppermint bark into tiny pieces. Add about 1 cup of crushed peppermint to the batter. Reserve an extra 1/4 cup of crushed peppermint bark to add on top of the cookies once they are done.
