With the holidays upon us, I’ve been wanting to showcase fun, quick and easy recipes to make – even twists on classics like this Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. Most everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, this one just adds a fun and festive holiday flavor! You can use any kind of peppermint bits you’d like- crushed up candies, candy canes, or even grab the peppermint chips in the baking aisle. I always like to break the candies into bits for a little free stress relief.
