I am in London for the week celebrating Christmas so this will be my last post until I return.  In addition to bringing you one more cookie recipe, I first and foremost want to wish you quality time with friends and family, many memories to add to your treasury and a holiday filled with peace and grace as we remember the reason for this magical season.

I have certainly been on a chocolate kick this season with cookies haven’t I?  First with these Brownie Drops

then these beloved Chocolate Snickerdoodles

and I’m topping the chocolate series off with these Chocolate Crinkle Peppermint Kiss Cookies.

These Chocolate Crinkle Peppermint Kiss Cookies are soft and chewy like a brownie and that little center bite of white chocolate peppermint kiss is just enough to remind you that it is the holidays.  These would be a fun cookie to make with kids because they would enjoy rolling the balls in powdered sugar and then planting the peppermint kiss on top of the cookies once they are baked.  Also, I’m pretty tight with Mr. Claus and he has informed me that he wouldn’t mind a big plate of these Chocolate Crinkle Peppermint Kiss Cookies waiting for him by the Christmas tree.  Merry Christmas to you and yours.
