It’s that time of year again! It’s time to announce this year’s contribution to The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! This is my fifth year participating in this fabulous event, hosted by Julie at The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love & Olive Oil. My job? Bake up a fantastically new cookie recipe and ship out boxes of treats to three hungry food bloggers, Secret Santa style. These delectable little cocoa-peppermint gems are what made the cut this year. Dark, and fudgy, but with a peppermint zing that seems just about perfect this time of year, I couldn’t wait to send them out to this year’s recipients, Ginger from Stark Raving Delicious, Kellie from The Suburban Soapbox, and Annie from Annie One Can Cook. Based on the response I got, I think they really enjoyed them! Hope you do too.
