chocolate peppermint cookies || christmas eve

it’s here! christmas eve. which means, cookies. for santa, for you, for anyone and everyone. 

you may have seen these when i posted to instagram yesterday, or on women’s health magazine’s IG feed. (sayy whaaaa??) + as promised the recipe is here.

so now if you heard that santa has gone dairy free this year, cause all the cool kids are, then you’ll be prepared + won’t leave him hangin. Processed with VSCOcam with s2 preset

these cookies have rich chocolate flavor, similar to a brownie + are infused with peppermint extract for an amazing flavor combo. then topped with crunchy candy cane because it’s festive, really delicious, + i’ll admit photos much better than a plain chocolate cookie. 

another option? if you love chocolate crinkle cookies, i found the texture of these to be very similar. you could simply roll the dough in part confectioners + part granulated sugar pre baking for that crinkle-cookie-powedered-sugary-look. going to try that my next batch because these didn’t make it to christmas eve at my place, in fact they barely made it through a me singing 12 days of christmas to my dog. 

i chose to use whole wheat flour, but gluten free or all purpose could be subbed. i also used coconut sugar which made it free of refined sugar, but again sub with regular granulated sugar if you’d like.
