Peppermint Bark Cookies!!
Peppermint Bark is my absolute favorite treat over the holidays. The minute Williams Sonoma has it on the shelf I am rushing to the mall to pick up a box…ok maybe a couple boxes.
It truly tastes like Christmas to me and every year I try to buy a lot so I can savor it as long as I can. A couple years ago I decided to throw some of the leftover bark into some cookie dough and oh my goodness it was tasty!
Cookies are actually my absolute favorite treat so combining two of my favorite things was a Christmas Dream.
This year I went a little further and decided to dip them in a little peppermint white chocolate and top it off with some festive sprinkle.
With cookie exchanging being a huge tradition over the holidays these festive and yummy treats are perfect for the party.
What you need:
Ingredients for Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Recipe– minus the chocolate chips
1 Box Peppermint Bark
3-4 Bars white Chocolate
Pre Heat your oven
In a plastic bag add your peppermint bark and with a rolling pin or heavy spoon smash your bark into pieces.
In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients for the cookies minus the chocolate chips and the peppermint bark will replace those.
Once ingredients are combined add the peppermint bark and fold it in.
Roll Cookies on cookie sheet and bake in the oven 9- 11 minutes. I check at 9 and typically take them out and let cool for 15 min
Melt the white Chocolate. While the cookies cool you can melt the white chocolate. Either over a double broiler (which means placing the white chocolate in bowl over a saucepan of boiling water) or simply melt it in the microwave.
Once the chocolate has melted stir in 1 drop of peppermint oil. *** peppermint oil is very strong/fragrant so a little goes a lot way.
Start dipping your cookies. I dip the cookies half because I like that you can see what you’re going to eat. Then top the white chocolate with festive sprinkles.
Let the white chocolate harden and set and in 15 minutes they are ready to enjoy.
