Easy chocolate cookie recipe
My father loves chocolate cookies. For years looking for an easy chocolate cookie recipe, he would enjoy, took many trials before finding the perfect chocolate cookie.
Why an easy chocolate cookie recipe? It was so my mom could make it if I wasn’t there. My mom can bake, but she not patient. So easy cookie recipes are perfect for bakers like her.
Christmas cookie ideas
Thinking of my father, dark chocolate cookies would be great Christmas cookie ideas. With holidays approaching it will soon be Christmas cookie baking time.
When comes to Christmas cookie ideas, a chocolate cookie should be one of those ideas. Everyone likes chocolate right?
When comes to Christmas flavors peppermint chocolate is one that comes to mind. Peppermint and chocolate go very well together. For a Christmas cookie recipe, what type of chocolate would be good for a peppermint chocolate cookie?
Dark chocolate cookies
There is not a lot of dark chocolate cookie recipes. Yes, there are chocolate cookies but they use Dutch cocoa.
Dark chocolate cookies I felt would balance the peppermint chocolate flavor I wanted for these Christmas cookies. Plus I was using peppermint crunch as a topping, the white and red look nicer on dark chocolate.
These dark chocolate cookies were not only an easy chocolate cookie recipe, but they were very tasty. I put the plate of cookies out and they disappeared within minutes.
