Peppermint Crinkle Cookies are the absolute perfect addition to the holiday baking list. They are ‘melt in your mouth’ kinda cookies, heavy on the chocolate and heavy on the peppermint as well. Brings Christmas to your taste buds for sure.
The wonderful song in the video is ‘Christmas Time With You’ from the Album ‘Vintage Christmas‘ by David Ian. This is an album all holiday lovers should know and own, it is on repeat in my house these days
Peppermint has always been one of my favorite flavours, and don’t even mention how excited I get when it is mixed with dark chocolate. That might be my favorite combo in the whole world.
This is my very first time to make crinkle cookies, and I have to say that making them crinkle is unbelievably satisfying. Pressing them flat when they are right out of the oven is kinda like popping bubble wrap. So that is definitely something you should look forward to.
And don’t forget, homemade goods always make a good present for friends and loved ones.
