New This Month

For holiday cookies, peppermint candies move from the candy dish and into deep, slightly bitter chocolate dough to create an irresistibly bold flavor.

    I didn't love these. They are OK, but with so many other fabulous cookies out there, I don't think I will be making them again. Wouldn't recommend.

    YUM! My friend and I made these last night, and they were SO good! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips--since there was candy in there, it seemed to work better than milk chocolate. I didn't think they needed any frosting, although it would be a festive touch!

    These cookies are really great, but you have to be careful not to cook them for too long! Right after the 12 minutes have elapsed take them out of the oven. Also, if you frost them (which I highly advise) don't put the cookies straight on the wire rack because once you finish frosting all of them, they are stuck to the rack!
