These Double Dark Chocolate Mint Cookies stir up all the emotions of Christmas. I don’t know about everyone else but most of my memories of the holidays involve food . Whether it is  the Thanksgiving turkey and dressing my mom made or the hours we spent in the kitchen doing our holiday baking. Most of my childhood memories are centered around food and all the yummy aromas. When I was young my mother and I spent several days in the kitchen making holiday cookies, pecan tassies, candies, and breads to give as holiday gifts .  I was in fat girl’s heaven!!

You see back in the 70’s and 80’s you simply didn’t go to the store and buy your neighbor, school teacher , or friend holiday treats. They had to be made with love and wrapped up in holiday cellophane wrap or even a holiday tin , and a bow was always carefully place on top. That is a tradition I still carry on today , everyone gets baked goods during the holidays from our household. There are some old standards we have to do but every year I try to create something a little different . Two of my favorite things are dark chocolate and peppermint so I combined them into a cookie .. Double Dark Chocolate Mint Cookies. These cookies are seriously what Christmas dreams are made of . Take one bite and you will swear Santa’s elves sprinkled a little Christmas magic on them. Rich dark chocolate with peppermint infused in the cookie and the white chocolate coating. These little gems are not only the taste of Christmas but they are precious , perfect for gift giving or even leaving out for Santa. If you love these you must check out my Peppermint Mocha Mix.

White chocolate and peppermint extract

Dip half of the cooled cookie into the white chocolate and place on the cooling rack to dry. I put a piece of wax paper under the cooling rack to catch the drippings and this makes clean up a cinch.

Before the white chocolate sets up sprinkle some holiday sprinkles onto that side of the cookie.
