Chocolate Peppermint Bark Cookies

ChocolatePeppermintCookie4

My goal for holiday cookies in December was to try something new. It is always good to keep up with traditions but I wanted to be a rebel. I had so many wonderful recipes I wanted to try, that there was no way I’d have time to make those, plus my classics.

For instance, peppermint bark is something I make for Christmas every year because it is delicious. I came across this wonderful cookie which featured peppermint bark on top of a buttery cookie. It was a twist on an old favorite and was one of the first holiday cookies I had baked up.

The verdict? They were very addicting. I had to hide them in the fridge so I couldn’t see them. Tasted just like peppermint bark but with a buttery shortbread cookie as the base. Cut them into fun shapes and pieces to mimic peppermint bark.
