I could eat peppermint allllll day – just ask my husband! I love peppermint lattes (no mocha – just the latte); peppermint bark Oreos, peppermint gum, anything peppermint.

Spearmint, on the other hand? Yuck. Too strong.

But peppermint is so clean and fresh and wonderful. Luckily for me, December is the perfect time to make all the peppermint things. I’m jumping on that bandwagon, and I started with these.



The flavors of white chocolate and peppermint are one of my favorite Christmas combinations. The sharp, minty taste with the creamy, cool white chocolate is just perfect!

These cookies are a riff on my chewy chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I used Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Chunks to spice up these cookies, then dipped them in almond bark and crushed candy canes. Could it be any more like Christmas around here?

We have a cookie exchange coming up and these are first on my list to share with everyone this year!
