Peppermint Patty Chocolate Cookies

8 days into December and I’m only half way through my Christmas shopping. Most people are in my shoes right now but I’m kind of in a freak out moment. Why you may ask? I’m usually done at this time or trying to get one or two more presents.

This past week I spent lounging around the house fighting off a nasty viral case of bronchitis. Cooking was off limits, baking was off limits and leaving the house was off limits. I was succumbed to the couch and eating whatever I could find in the pantry and refrigerator. My poor family also had to fend for themselves during mealtime. As of Monday morning I can officially say that we all survived.

Peppermint Patty Chocolate Cookies

I even woke up yesterday morning to bake a round of these peppermint patty chocolate cookies. Everyone seemed to LOVE the peppermint chocolate fudge so much that I decided why not incorporate the peppermint patty into a cookie. Chocolate cookies were the only way to go. Like the fudge I wanted the peppermint patty to stand out and be the star of the dish. I made chewy chocolate cookies with peppermint patty in the middle with a chocolate drizzle on top. These cookies are like heaven on a plate. No really they are that good.

You will notice a ton of peppermint patty recipes out there but I decided to make my own with my favorite International Delight Creamer thats flavored with peppermint chocolate truffle. There are a ton of holiday ID flavors out there and I can’t wait to try them all.
