Yummy Chocolate Peppermint Cookies so delicious they disappear fast! These make a wonderful addition to the Holiday cookie tray or for gifts for friends.

I was inspired to make these cookies based on the menu offerings at Disney’s California Adventure Festival of the Holidays Assorted Cookies. They have a Chocolate Candy Cane cookie that looks delicious. I used Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips instead of candy canes as I didn’t want them to melt into the cookie and get sticky. These Chocolate Peppermint Cookies came out so yummy that I wanted to buy every bag of the peppermint crunch I could find and save in my freezer so we could make these any time during the year.
