On the 12th Day of Christmas my sweet tooth gave to me Triple Chocolate Mint Fudgies.

There is so much FA LA LA LA-ing in my kitchen right now it’s hard to think straight!  You know how I love getting inspiration for cookbooks and magazines and then re-inventing a recipe to make it my own and this recipe is soooooooo great that I could hardly wait to share it with you!

I stayed inside all day and baked which, in my world, is a perfect day.  I started with these little gems then proceeded to ginger molasses cookies and finally some vegan gluten-free chocolate chippers for my cousin.

I was inspired by Cooks Illustrated for these chocolatey, gooey, minty babies and they are now one of my favorite cookies!  I have already thought of so many variations to try!

This cookie will be added to the list of cookies that I make every holiday season.  They are moist and fudgey thanks to the melted semi-sweet chocolate in the batter.  The richness of the cookie is balanced nicely by the milder sweetness of the milk and white chocolate chips.  Finally, all of the chocolate goodness is complimented by the subtle fresh hint of peppermint.
