I revamped one of my son’s favorite cookie recipes. Double chocolate cookies—with the addition of peppermint and melted white chocolate, thus making them Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies!
So delicious, so easy, and so pretty. You can make these with or without the white chocolate for dipping, but it really does take them up a notch. So pretty!
