I’ve been on a cookie spree lately, but I figure that during this time of year you can never have too many options when it comes to cookies, right? There’s also a lot of seasonal flavors this time of year, and sometimes people can be really opinionated about them. Today it’ll be chocolate and peppermint and I know people either love the combination.. or they don’t.
Of course, these cookies are for the fans.
As for me, I love festive flavors for every season. I’ve been playing with a lot of cookie flavors recently, and was so excited to come up with these white chip chocolate cookies with peppermint. These cookies combine some of my favorite flavors and allows them to weave together deliciously so there’s not just one main star. The entire cookie is the star.
I used unsweetened cocoa powder for the cookie, good quality white chips and a splash of peppermint extract in the mix to go along with the sprinkle of crushed candy canes on top.They are thick, the edges are crispy, and the middle is soft and fudgy. Then the little crunch from the crushed candy canes on top. I just love that wave of peppermint fragrance when you pull them out of the oven, but it’s not overpowering at all. Best of all, they’re made to gift!
I just love to gift homemade cookies to my favorite people, I don’t think anything beats a gift made out of love, and that’s why when I was at my local Walmart getting some baking supplies for these cookies I was so excited to see that these Rubbermaid TakeAlongs come in a various sizes for all of my gifting needs and they also come in a variety of festive holiday colors and prints! They’re not just for cookies either, they come in a plenty of convenient sizes and shapes to fit your needs and help you share and celebrate for the holidays. I love the Quik Clik Seal™ technology that secures foods and prevents spills, and I also love that these are both microwave and dishwasher safe.
In fact, Walmart shoppers can receive $1 off any 2 Rubbermaid TakeAlongs with this rebate offer. I went ahead and bought packages in each color since I always need more food storage, especially this time of year. Whenever I have guests for dinner, we’re left scrambling at the end of the night for something to put their food in so they can take some home, so I think these are also a great option for that as well.
