I needed chocolate to offset all the turkey and dressing leftovers I’ve been eating for the last few days so I made some quick cookies on Sunday.
Cookies chocked full of chocolate …
… and peppermint M&M’s.
I blame Target and their huge end cap seasonal Christmas candy displays for these cookies. I was shopping with my mom and walked right past these until she pointed out they were white chocolate inside.
Yes. White chocolate peppermint M&M’s. Yum.
So naturally, I had to buy a couple of bags. Some to snack on and some to bake with. And some to snack on while I’m baking.
Plus, it never hurts to have white M&M’s on hand for random decorating.
I used dark cocoa for the chocolate in these cookies but you can use regular, too.
Roll the dough into balls and bake.
I like to reserve some of the chips and candies to press into the balls after they are rolled so the chips aren’t all hidden inside the cookie.
It helps them look prettier and more pepperminty this way after they are baked.
Not that any looks would stop me from warm, soft cookies. Big bites right out of the oven are always a must.
Enjoy these “I can’t eat any more turkey” treats!
