    Your perfect holiday cookie is here! A soft double chocolate cookie topped with a fudgy chocolate frosting and peppermint candies.

    Happy December..It’s time for all things baking and the Christmas season! Yippee!

    It’s also time for this month’s Fill the Cookie Jar. Just a quick re-cap…it’s a fabulous Facebook baking group that shares their favorite cookie recipes each month. This month’s theme is, of course, Christmas.

    When I think of Christmas cookies, peppermint seems to be a perfect choice.  What goes great with peppermint? Chocolate, of course!  A nice, chewy, chocolate cookie filled with chocolate chips and then, we top them off with a dreamy, chocolate frosting.  Then, we’ve sprinkle them with a chopped peppermint candies.

    These are soooooo good. I so very much love them and so will me. Don’t forget to leave a cold glass of milk for Santa with these..they are super-chocolaty!
