H

o Ho Ho! Now does this Dark Chocolate Peppermint Crunch cookie look festive? This cookie is actually special. Why is it special you may ask? Well, it was the cookie I made for a Food Blogger Love Cookie Exchange!

You see I was sent 3 other food bloggers, and I had to send them a dozen cookies. Originally I wanted to send another cookie. Now you will see that cookie later on in the 12 days of cookie recipes.

However, the timing of when I had to get a cookie done to be shipped out and with the huge grand opening of the hospital. I ran out time to make the original cookie. So I decided to make one that is a bit simpler.

As I said I had to send out to 3 food bloggers. So that means I got 3 different cookie dozens sent to me. Would you like to see the yummy cookies I was sent? Well then here you go:

So on this day 7 of my 12 days of cookies recipes, I bring you Dark Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies. These are a basic drop cookie, like chocolate chip. I choose dark chocolate because, well I am kind of loving dark chocolate. Dark chocolate in sweet treats to me tastes better. The bitter really evens out the sweet.
