These mint chocolate chip cookies are a twist on the classic sugar cookie recipe and are quick, easy and even whole wheat! Perfect for Christmas!
How was your Thanksgiving? Did you ingest a LOT of gluten free stuffing and roasted sweet potato pie bites?Are you still in a food coma? BECAUSE, if you’re not, I TOTALLY take back the opening sentence.
I just can’t be friends with peeps who don’t eat themselves silly on a day that involves roasty, toasty birdy goodness AND little squares of crunchy but still sort of soft, pieced of carby numnums.
Ours was CRAZY. And by crazy I mean that it wasn’t AT ALL, because my family already celebrated Thanksgiving, due to being from the land of snow dogs and Maple Syrup.
Sidenote: I totally typed “Canadian” But then decided that was much too boring, and it needed more DESCRIPTION. Just in case you were wondering how I type these posts.
I made my first WHOLE turkey (see below!) It was actually SO good. But, since there are only 2 of us, we have leftovers for DAYZ.
Not that I am complaining. I also can’t confirm or deny that we had stuffing. Like, from a box. Because I am the world’s most fail food blogger and I was too lazy to make my own. For the vegetable portion, I made those Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts from a few weeks back.
I’m still stuffed.
You can Judge me for the boxed stuffing. But, it totally rocked my sockies, so I’m good with it.
ANYWAYS, the sequel.
Now that Turkey Day is over, we can go FULL FORCE into Christmas…although we did start early with those Mini Mint White Chocolate Cheesecakes and Mint Paleo Gluten Free Chocolate Cake. Whatever, I had to get PEPPERMINTING all the things out of my system. You understand.
Now, you guys obviously remember that tower of crunchy, chocolatey pumpkin Trifle YUM from a few weeks back amIright? Where I discussed the NEED to Holiday-I-fy my current obsession, Brownie Brittle?
Obviously, we can’t push it off the Christmas train. So, today we are being all sorts of Holiday inclusive.
And, if being nice, inclusive humans isn’t enough to make you feel good about your life, we’re eating cookies.
Which can never go wrong. Even when they do, they’re right.
Don’t think about that sentence. GO WITH IT.
This sugar cookie recipe is based off another sugar cookie recipe that I posted LAST Christmas, and then I decided to give them some jazzy-chocolate-crunchy-minty-fresh kinda nums by mixing it all up with Mint Chocolate Brownie Brittle.
I have to say, that is my most FAVORITE flavor of the treats. I can’t get ENOUGH chocolate and peppermint. In sugar cookies, in White Chocolate Biscotti. I JUST LOVE IT.
The cookies are seriously THICK, soft and chewy (which, in my opinion, is the ONLY way a cookie should be) and then they have that SURPRISE crunch factor.
You know about my texture-freak ways. So, this, it makes me one happy camper.
Except I don’t camp in the winter. I ain’t no “survival man” or whatever that crazy guy on TV calls himself.
This is my suggestion (read:order): Let’s all make Mint Chocolate Brownie Brittle Cookies and then sit around in our comfy Pjs, sipping hot chocolate and watching the Fire Place Channel on TV, so we can pretend like we’re being all campy and adventurous.
I know you watch it too.
