My sister and her friend first made these cookies last year right before Christmas and they were a hit! They are now part of my yearly Christmas cookie list.
The only thing I do differently from the original recipe is I only coat the cookie part way. I like to taste a balance between the peppermint flavored chocolate cookie and the white chocolate coating…plus it’s easier to just partially dunk the cookies! They set up faster and look quite artistic!
You really do have to follow all of the steps in the recipe including refrigerating/freezing the dough twice. These cookies may take a little more TLC than the average cookie, but they are so delicious that the work fades in your memory as you savor them with each bite!
So from me to you preparing for tomorrow’s “Halfway to Christmas” day, June 25, I share Louis Armstrong’s “Cool Yule” with the applicable lyric: “You’ll flip when old Saint Nick / Places a lick on the peppermint stick!” Tune in to the morning show 7:00 to 10:00 AM CST!
