Triple-Chocolate Peppermint Cookies Tips
How can you make triple-chocolate peppermint cookies your own?
Skip the frosting and give the cookies a chocolate dip instead! Using the microwave, melt white or semisweet chocolate chips in a measuring cup in 30-second increments, stirring until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway into the chocolate and sprinkle a crushed candy cane over the top for a festive finish. Let the cookies sit on waxed paper or a cooling rack until the chocolate is firm.
