It’s that time of year when my kitchen resembles a bakery 99.9% of the time. I’m in full baking mode here. My family is loving it & what we can’t realistically eat is packaged up & sent to the station. Which is great- except they already receive treats from the public almost daily. 🙂 That’s okay – they are such sweet guys & gladly accept all the things I send their way. But in all my baking I found a particular chocolate chip cookie recipe that the hubs has requested I make again & again. This recipe was even able to break one of the firefighters from his vegan, all natural diet he’s been on. He has been so good for months but he threw caution to the wind & enjoyed some.
It’s so yummy- the combo of the super soft, chewy chocolate cookie- with the taste of peppermint.
It’s like eating a soft thin mint- no crunch- just chocolate & mint goodness.
The Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips are fabulous. I hope they make them available year round.
You know you want one!!
