Double Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies – The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2015

Double Chocolate Peppermint Crunch Cookies - Chew Nibble Nosh 7

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.

This year, I was lucky enough to receive these delectable creations from three amazing ladies:

Almond Meltaway Cookies – The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013

 I truly can’t believe that it’s time for this again.  Where did this year go?  It seems like just yesterday, I was in my kitchen in Georgia, complaining about the un-wintery winter, and baking up cookies to send to food bloggers in different corners of the country for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2012.  But alas, a year has passed and now I’m in my office in Indiana, actually enjoying the wintery winter (So far. I’m sure I will get annoyed at some point.) ready to write about 2013’s cookie swap.  AMAZING.

It’s finally here!  If you follow me on Twitter (@chewnibblenosh) or take a peek at my Facebook page every once in a while, you may have heard me mention how excited I was to be a part of the first annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  Thanks to our hosts, Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen, myself and over 600 food bloggers from across the country (and Canada!) participated in a cookie swap of massive proportions over the past couple of weeks.  Each participant baked a batch of cookies and then sent a dozen to three other participants, Secret Santa style.
