December 8th-Peppermint Mocha Cookies! These cookies were actually supposed to be half dipped in white chocolate, then sprinkled with crushed candy cane….but before I realized that, I put the white chocolate chips in the batter….So I just added crushed candy cane on top before and after baking. Still delicious though:) Find this recipe here-https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/peppermint-mocha-cookies/
December 9th-Gingerbread hanging cookies and a marshmallow snowman face!! This is just how much more fun your hot chocolate could be! 🙂 I stuck the candy cane on the back of a decorated cookie with royal icing, and also used the royal icing on the marshmallow for the snowman’s face.
